Abstract: Radiofrequency catheter ablation is a major advance in the treatment of tachyarrhythmias, particularly SVT. It offers the chance of permanent cure, without the need for major surgery, for a condition that is usually life-long and necessitates years of drug treatment. At present the risks of RF ablation are low, although not insignificant; potential subjects must be given the opportunity of making an informed choice. With improvements in technique and equipment, the indications for this procedure are likely to widen.
