The Effects of Radiofrequency or Cryothermal Ablation on Biomechanical Properties of Isolated Human or Swine Cardiac Tissues
Changes in cardiac tissue properties following the application of various ablation modalities may lead to the development of an array of associated complications. The application of either radiofrequency (RF) or cryothermal ablations will alter the biomechanical properties of various cardiac... Read more
