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 ...
