Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) represents an effective option for idiopathic premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) treatment. Ablation Index (AI) is a novel ablation marker incorporating RF power, contact force, and time of delivery into a single weighted formula. Data regarding AI-guided PVCs RFCA are currently lacking. Aim of the study was to compare AI-guided and standard RFCA outcomes in patients with PVCs originating from the right ventricle outflow tract (RVOT).
