Abstract

Background: Radiofrequency ablation has become first-line therapy for supraventricular tachycardia in all age groups, but there has been a concern regarding the long-term effectiveness of the procedure in children. This study aimed to determine the inducibility after successful ablation of supraventricular tachycardia in children; assessment was performed using a transesophageal electrophysiologic study.
