Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: -A canine right atrial (RA) linear lesion model was used to produce a complex pattern of RA activation to evaluate a novel mapping system for rapid, high resolution (HR) electroanatomical mapping. METHODS AND RESULTS: -The mapping system (Rhythmia Medical, Inc) uses an 8F deflectable catheter with a mini-basket (1.8cm diameter), containing 8 splines of 8 electrodes (total 64 electrodes, 2.5mm spacing). The system automatically acquires electrograms and location information based on electrogram stability and respiration phase. In 10 anesthetized dogs, HR-RA map was obtained by maneuvering the mini-basket catheter during sinus rhythm and CS pacing. A right thoracotomy was performed and either one or two (to create a gap) epicardial linear lesions were created on the RA free-wall (surgical incision or epicardial radiofrequency lesions). RA maps during RA pacing close to the linear lesions were obtained. Total 73 maps were created with 44-729 (median 237) beats and 833-12,412 (median 3,589) electrograms (≤2-≤5mm from surface geometry), resolution 1.8-5.3 (median 2.7) mm, and 2.6-26.3 (median 7.3) min mapping time. Without manual annotation, the system accurately created RA geometry and demonstrated RA activation, identifying the location of lines of block and presence or absence of a gap in all 10 dogs. Endocardial radiofrequency catheter ablation of a gap (guided by activation map) produced complete block across the gap in all 3 dogs tested. CONCLUSIONS: -The new HR-mapping system accurately and quickly identifies geometry and complex patterns of activation in the canine RA with little or no manual annotation of activation time.
