Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Could Be Used For Non-Invasive Cardiac Ablation, Study Shows
A five-patient trial shows that cardiac ablation with noninvasive stereotactic cardiac radiotherapy can reduce the burden of ventricular tachycardia. The technique could be a major improvement over catheter ablation, because its non-invasive and would allow for access to areas of the ventricular tachycardia that are inaccessible to catheter ablation. But more trials are needed to refine the technique and improve safety.
