Approaches to empiric ablation of slow pathway: results from the Canadian EP web survey Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Aim Dual atrioventricular nodal physiology (DAVNP) is a frequent finding in patients with suspected or documented supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Empiric slow pathway ablation (ESPA) is sometimes performed in patients with DAVNP without inducible SVT at the time of electrophysiological study. Evidence to guide this practice in the adult population is limited. This study was aimed to assess the practice of ESPA by adult electrophysiologists in Canada.
