Cardiac Arrhythmia Technology Handbook
from C.H.I.P.S.

Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias
Basic Concepts and Clinical Applications
Third edition
edited by David J. Wilber

Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias: Basic Concepts and Clinical Applications contains 21 chapters, each updating the fundamentals and progressing to advanced concepts, providing state-of-the-art knowledge with highly relevant material.

Each chapter dealing with ablation of a specific arrhythmia features the author's personal approach to ablation of the arrhythmia, including practical "how-to" tips, and a review of potential pitfalls.

Alternate approaches and variations are succinctly summarized. Original figures and drawings illustrate specific approaches to improve the usability of the book.
