This handy volume summarizes the important findings of the VeniceChart International Consensus Document on Ventricular Tachycardia/Fibrillation Ablation. The 14 chapters correspond to the topics discussed by the Task Force:

Epidemiology, classification and clinical impact of VT/VF

Anatomy of right/left ventricles and surrounding structure in health and disease

Pathophysiology and mechanisms of VT/VF

ECG features of VT/VF as expression of the underlying mechanisms and site of origin

Pre-and intra-procedural management

Mapping methods for VT/VF ablation

Imaging tools, energy sources and catheters for VT/VF ablation

Ablation of VT/VF in patient with structural HD: techniques and results

Ablation of VT/VF in patient without structural HD: techniques and results

Acute and periprocedural complications

Post-VT ablation follow up management

Surgical ablation

Indications to VT/VF ablation and hybrid therapy

Future tools and treatment options

The equivalent of a workshop on VT/VF, this reference helps you incorporate the most effective methods and treatments into patient care.
