Abstract

Catheter based treatment of arrhythmia has gained significant attention during the last two decades. Due to the explosive development in ablation treatment of atrial fibrillation, huge interest in new tools was born to help in the atrial fibrillation ablation procedures. The aim of this review is to describe the role of these novel techniques and tools aimed at improving the implementation of catheter based ablations of atrial arrhythmias by focusing on the use of intra-cardiac echocardiogram and robotic navigation.
