Effect of Tissue Elasticity in Cardiac Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation Models
Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is an effective treatment for different types of cardiac arrhythmias. However, major complications can occur, including thrombus formation and steam pops. We present a full 3D ...
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 ...
