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
(PLoS One, 2016)
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 ...
