Focusing on anatomy and procedural strategy for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, Intracardiac Echocardiography in Interventional Electrophysiology uses pictures and schematic diagrams to show how to use intracardiac echo (ICE) to assess anatomy, guide ablation, and prevent complications during interventional procedures, pulmonary vein stenosis, and embolic events.
Containing numerous graphics, checklists, and flow charts that enable readers to locate information rapidly and easily, this is a highly useful resource for both echocardiographers and cardiac electrophysiologists.
