Title:
Transseptal Puncture Guided by CT-Derived 3D-Augmented Fluoroscopy. 
Abstract:
Transseptal puncture for left atrial (LA) access is still mainly performed using fluoroscopy and transesophageal or intracardiac echocardiography. We present an easily applicable approach for the guidance of transseptal puncture that uses the combination of a 3D-mapping system and CT-derived 3D-overlayed anatomy.A computer tomographic (CT) LA-angiography was performed in n = 65 patients prior to a scheduled atrial fibrillation ablation procedure.
