Title:
Evaluation of epicardial microwave lesions in the pig model using an electroanatomic mapping system. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Surgical ablation techniques using microwave energy are an alternative to catheter-based ablation therapy in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. We investigate electrical conduction properties of linear lesions after epicardial ablation in a pig model by using an electroanatomic mapping system. METHODS: After medial sternotomy in eight pigs epicardial pacing wires were placed on the anterior and posterolateral wall of the right atrium. Endocardial electroanatomical mapping was perf...    »
