Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Clinical and electrophysiologic parameters were analyzed to define the factors potentially related to tachycardia recurrences in 79 patients undergoing successful radiofrequency ablation of idiopathic right or left ventricular tachycardia. It was found that the endocardial activation time at the successful ablation site was the only independent predictor of tachycardia recurrences.
