Abstract

With the advent of radiofrequency ablation in the early 1990’s, clinical cardiac electrophysiology was transformed from a purely diagnostic discipline into a therapeutic one. Step by step, it was shown that common rhythm disorders could be safely and effectively treated by radiofrequency ablation. One by one, from Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, to atrioventricular nodal reentry, to common atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardias were falling into the category of curable diseases.

Two rhythm disorders, however, have withstood this progress and remain challenging: atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia associated with ischemic heart disease.
