New technologies for ablation therapy in children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

There has been great progress in pediatric catheter ablation treatment over the last 15 years. The success rates have increased while the occurrence of complications has decreased. This paper reviews common tachyarrhythmias in children and current treatments. We report our experience on more than 15,000 children treated with catheter ablation from 1988 to 2004 at the University of Naples and San Raffaele University Hospital, with special attention to the treatment of asymptomatic Wolff-Parkinson-White. Conclusion: catheter ablation in pediatric patients is becoming a standard of care for many tachyarrhythmias. Technological progress is improving the outcomes of ablative strategies.
