Transjugular approach for zero-fluoroscopy catheter ablation of the right anterolateral accessory pathway
We present a case of successful zero-fluoroscopy catheter ablation (CA) of the right anterolateral accessory (AP) pathway via a transjugular approach in an 18-year-old patient with a congenital agenesis of inferior vena cava (IVC). Three-dimensional (3D) electroanatomic mapping (EAM) system and intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) were used to navigate the catheters in the heart.
