Paper Abstract

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy is commonly used to treat cardiac arrythmias. To restore sinus rhythm, areas of myocardium that triggers abnormal electrical activity are ablated. However, patients require multiple procedures for treatment. Clinicians currently lack the intraoperative surgical tools to visualize and assess tissue during ablation. Real-time visualization of myocardial tissue and lesion formation in vivo could potentially help reduce relapses. In this work, a combined multispectral fiber bundle-RFA catheter is introduced to assess contact and directly visualize lesion formation during and after ablation.
