William H. Sauer, MD, FHRS, CCDS of Brigham and Women's Hospital, is joined by Uyanga Batnyam, MD of the University of Washington and Usha B. Tedrow, MD, MS, FHRS of Brigham and Women`s Hospital to discuss the risks of radiofrequency catheter ablation for ventricular arrhythmias include emboli and bleeding complications but data on antithrombotic regimens are limited and guidelines do not specify a systematic approach. This study sought to assess embolic and bleeding complications in relation to pre- and postperiprocedure antithrombotic regimens. Stroke is a rare complication of radiofrequency catheter ablation for ventricular arrhythmia using ASA 325 mg/d as a minimal postprocedure regimen with more potent regimens for selected patients.
