In this short video from Arrhythmia Academy's Journal Club, Dr Serge Boveda (Clinique Pasteur Toulouse, FR) and Dr Andreu Porta-Sanchez (Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, ES) discuss the key elements that must be considered in pre-procedural planning for pulsed-field ablation.

Discussion Points Include:

What is the pre-procedural planning needed for PFA?

Can it be done without general anaesthesia?

How many applications per vein?

Do you need a CT reconstruction or imaging for every case?

Do you need to use a mapping system?

What is the usual procedure time?

Are all the veins isolated after a few months of the procedure?

Is it safer than radiofrequency?
