Although it is a lot of studies show about the quality of life (QoL)of patients who were treated with radiofrequency catheter ablation of idiopathic frequent ventricular premature contraction (IFVPC). no one focused on the difference between non-X-ray fluoroscopic and routine X-ray radiofrequency catheter ablation in IFVPC.
the comparison of QoL changes of IFVPCs patients in under the guidance of the CARTO3 non-X-ray and conventional under X-ray guidance before and after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA).
analysis of 112 cases in IFVPC were randomized to treatment from Between January 2013 and January 2015, which non-X-ray group 53 cases, namely the use of Carto3 system to reconstruct three-dimensional model of the heart in the non-X-ray fluoroscopic catheter ablation. the other 59 cases, as routine group, just show conventional mapping. All patients were evaluated with the Swedish Short Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36) before RFCA and 7 day, 1 month,3 month,6 month after procedure.
Obviously, quality of life of non-X-ray group at 7 day after RFCA, in six of eight SF-36 domains: RP, GH, VT, SF, RE, MH was higher degree comparing to the routine group. With the time gone, Quality of life scores got close and no statistical significance at 1 month,3 month,6 month after the procedure.
both of radiofrequency ablation in the treatment of idiopathic ventricular early can significantly improve QoL of patients. compared to the traditional X - ray mapping and ablation of ventricular premature, non –X-ray radiofrequency catheter ablation can better improve the QoL of patients.
