How does radiofrequency ablation efficacy depend on the stiffness of the cardiac tissue? Insights from a computational model
Objective. Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is an effective treatment for the elimination of cardiac arrhythmias, however it is not exempt from complications that can risk the patients’ life. The efficacy of the ...
A computational model of open-irrigated radiofrequency catheter ablation accounting for mechanical properties of the cardiac tissue
Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is an effective treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. Although generally safe, it is not completely exempt from the risk of complications. The great flexibility of computational models ...
Computational modeling of open-irrigated electrodes for radiofrequency cardiac ablation including blood motion-saline flow interaction
Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is a routine treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. During RFCA, the electrode-tissue interface temperature should be kept below 80°C to avoid thrombus formation. Open-irrigated electrodes ...
Computational Model for Prediction of the Occurrence of Steam Pops during Irrigated Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation
Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is a curative treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. Although globally a pretty safe procedure, it may present some risk. Steam pop is a serious complication that can occur during RFCA ...
