Radiofrequency ablation for treatment of frequent premature ventricular
contractions by transradial access in a patient with severe vascular
AbstractIn radiofrequency catheter ablation of idiopathic ventricular
arrhythmias, catheters are routinely sent into the heart through femoral
arteries or femoral veins. But once femoral vessels are not suitable for
puncture and approach, transradial artery access becomes the choice.
Here, we report the case of a 73-year-old man with frequent premature
ventricular contractions and severe vascular disease who successfully
received radiofrequency catheter ablation through radial artery access.
