PMID:  9708675     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In a series of 14 patients undergoing transseptal catheterization for ablation of left-sided accessory pathways, hydrogen appearance time was used to detect left-to-right shunting after removal of the catheter. Six of the 12 patients who had no evidence of shunt before catheterization had evidence of shunting after the procedure.
