Abstract

Till the late 1980s, there was precious little one could do to permanently cure arrhythmias. Cardiac surgery did not live up to its promise for ventricular tachycardia. For WPW syndrome, surgery was too invasive a procedure, with a significant chance of major complications. Electrophysiologists spent hours trying to unravel tachycardia mechanisms, and were often referred to as "electrophilosophers". Since the advent of RF ablation, this scenario underwent a sea change. Suddenly one was able to get rid of many arrhythmias with a much less invasive procedure. Electrophysiology centers mushroomed and got upgraded in the developed world.
