Atrial Fibrillation Ablation: The State of the Art Based on the Venicechart International Consensus Document

Andrea Natale, Antonio Raviele

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

In recent years, catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation has become a widespread treatment modality in electrophysiology laboratories all over the world. Nevertheless, many aspects of the therapy are controversial. Developed by world-renowned experts in the field, this book presents a comprehensive and up-to date overview of all the most important and debated aspects of atrial fibrillation ablation, including: Ablation techniques and technologies. Procedural endpoints. Patient management pre-, peri- and post-ablation. Anticoagulation issues. Prevention and treatment of complications. Definition of success and long-term results. The text expands upon the content of the VeniceChart international consensus document on atrial fibrillation ablation and is enriched by several explanatory figures and tables. It provides a highly valuable source of information not only for researchers and specialists in electrophysiology, but also for general cardiologists, internists, fellows in cardiology and medical students.
