Abstract

IBARRA-CASTILLO, Rita  and  AMORES-ARELLANO, Nelson. Radiofrequency ablation of a left free-wall accessory pathway by transradial approach. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2012, vol.82, n.2, pp. 131-134. ISSN 1405-9940.

Radiofrequency ablation of left free-wall accessory pathways in the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is conventionally made by retrograde transaortic approach from one of the femoral arteries. We report the case of a patient with a left anterolateral pathway, with difficulties in the approach through the iliac arteries, which pathway was ablated from the right radial artery.

Keywords : Catheter Ablation; Radiofrequency; Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome; Transradial; Ecuador.
