Abstract
Drug therapy treatment of cardiac arrhythmias has been disappointing, while percutaneous catheter ablation, efficient and at low risk, has become the first line therapy of the majority of rhythm disturbances, in only two decades. The ultimate challenge, which is atrial fibrillation ablation, is on the way to be successfully solved. This is mainly due to: innovative ablational energy sources; 3D virtual electro-anatomical reconstructions of heart cavities, to map and understand complex arrhythmias' circuits; revolutionary magnetic navigation systems that permit the target positioning of the catheters in the most inaccessible places, even though the operator works at a command board placed away from the patient.
