Abstract

ECG mapping for the localization of ventricular arrhythmias or accessory pathways has up to now been performed based on pattern recognition of spontaneous or paced signals. The aim of our investigation was die direct comparison of the localization obtained using an inverse Solution for both electrical and magnetic field distributions in patients, using successful ablation of accessory pathways as reference method.
