Successful radiofrequency ablation of atrial tachycardias in surgically repaired Ebstein's anomaly using the Carto XP system and the QwikStar catheter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We describe the case of a child with three different atrial tachyarrhythmias originating from the right atrium, in whom a limited modified maze procedure was performed during surgical repair of an Ebstein's anomaly. Successful radiofrequency transcatheter ablation of all atrial tachyarrhythmias, one re-entrant and two focal, was obtained using the Carto XP EP three-dimensional navigation and ablation system, the new QwikMap software technology and the new mapping/ablation QwikStar multipolar catheter. No conventional mapping was used in addition to the three-dimensional system. Total procedural time was about 3 h and fluoroscopy time was 40 min. There were neither recurrences of the tachycardias nor complications during the follow-up (15 months).
