Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Rotational angiography is a novel method for three-dimensional reconstruction of the left atrium and pulmonary veins during catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation, but is still hampered by suboptimal reconstructions in a considerable number of patients. We describe the results of rapid pacing of the right ventricle for optimization of image acquisition during rotational angiography.
