Abstract: Use of radiofrequency current to induce an endocardial lesion in a human subject dates to 1987, so that the present status of RF ablation as the treatment of choice for supraventricular arrhythmias has come about quite rapidly. The technique affords both a high success rate and a low incidence of complications, although some sites are difficult to reach. Its use is being extended to certain ventricular tachycardias, and with technological improvements other arrhythmias may also be treatable.
