In this short video from Arrhythmia Academy’s Journal Club, Dr Serge Boveda (Clinique Pasteur Toulouse, FR) and Dr Andreu Porta-Sanchez (Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, ES) discuss the key elements that must be considered in pre-procedural planning for pulsed-field ablation.
Discussion points include:
What is the pre-procedural planning needed for PFA?
Can it be done without general anaesthesia?
How many applications per vein?
Do you need a CT reconstruction or imaging for every case?
Do you need to use a mapping system?
What is the usual procedure time?
Are all the veins isolated after a few months of the procedure?
Is it safer than radiofrequency?
