Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Robotic navigation systems aim to improve ablation catheter maneuverability, tissue contact, and stability. These attributes suggest that such systems could enhance outcomes in the ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT). To date, however, ablation has been confined to the atria. We present a case in which robotic catheter navigation alongside three-dimensional anatomical mapping enabled successful ablation of VT within the left ventricle.
