Petr Neuzil (Cardiocentre, Na Homolce Hospital, Prague) talks about the latest technologies currently being researched in the treatment of arrhythmia. New technologies and innovations such as RF balloons (such as the Biosense Webster; Helios), electroporation and diamond tip RF catheters aim to speed up the application time of the procedure. The electrophysiology (EP) field is growing to the point where nearly all arrhythmias are treatable. Atrial fibrillation is common in elderly but younger patients are also presenting at the clinic due to other factors such as stress. Neuromodulation principles that help to target AF outside the heart, is an interesting prospect for the future.
