Abstract

Intracardiac echocardiography is emerging as a potentially useful tool during RF ablation procedures. There are a number of potential benefits of direct endocardial visualization during RF ablation including: (1) precise anatomical localization of the ablation catheter tip in relation to important endocardial structures, which cannot be visualizedwith fluoroscopy (2) reduction in fluoroscopy time; (3) evaluation ofcatheter tip tissue contact; (4) confirmation of lesion formation andidentification of lesion size and continuity (5) immediate identification of complications; and (6) as a research tool to help in understanding the critical role played by specific endocardial structures in arrhythmogenesis. This article will review existing data and speculate as to possible future roles for intracardiac echocardiography in interventional electrophysiology.
