abstract

  • The optimal end point for ablating ATs after mitral valve surgery with the superior transseptal approach is to establish lines of block that can be recognized by characteristic patterns of activation in the lateral RA. A novel criterion for lateral conduction block after catheter ablation is identification of a late-activated corridor in the anterolateral RA.
