Abstract

We describe the case of a pregnant woman with an adenosinerefractory, poorly tolerated atrioventricular nodal reciprocating tachycardia (AVNRT), and successfully treated by RF ablation using an electroanatomical mapping system without radiation exposure. The procedure with the use of the navigation system associated with an irrigated catheter results in a possibility of definitive resolution of the tachycardia in absolute safety for the patient and for the fetus.
