Radiofrequency catheter ablation of an accessory atrioventricular connection in a Fontan patient

Pacing Clin Electrophysiol. 1993 Jul;16(7 Pt 1):1434-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1540-8159.1993.tb01740.x.


Radiofrequency catheter ablation is fast becoming the procedure of choice for the nonpharmacological treatment of atrioventricular connections that are responsible for debilitating tachycardias. We, herein, present a case of reentrant supraventricular tachycardia secondary to an atrioventricular connection in a Fontan patient that was successfully treated with radiofrequency catheter ablation.
