Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The significance of atrial fibrillation is increasing, and also the impact of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation procedures. After any ablation method, the chance to develop other atrial tachyarrhythmias is between 3 and 50 %. In this chapter the different AF ablation techniques, the pathophysiology of the atrial tachycardias, those diagnostic steps, and therapeutic possibilities are reviewed.
