The new electrophysiology laboratory at Cornell University in upstate New York (USA) directed by Dr Roberto Santilli, Romain Pariaut and Sydney Moise has been inaugurated. A first patient, “Bob” a Labrador Retriever, underwent to radiofrequency catheter ablation of a right posterior accessory pathway mediating a fast reciprocating tachycardia. The Cornell Lab will be assisted by Dr Roberto Santilli experienced in the field of cardiac electrophysiology gained through years of leadership of an EP laboratory at the Clinica Veterinaria Malpensa in Samarate – Varese – Italy . The Cornell EP Lab will be the only veterinarian present in North America to perform ablations of all supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias dog.
“BERTUS” a Rottweiler, male, 2 year old from Holland (NL) has been referred to the Electrophysiologic laboratory of Clinica Veterinaria Malpensa lead by Dr Roberto Santilli for paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia refractory to medical treatment, to perform an endocardial mapping and possibly radiofrequency catheter ablation of the arrhythmia. During electrophysiologic study Bertus presented several episodes of atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia mediated by a right postero-septal accessory pathway that was successfully eliminated with radiofrequency catheter ablation. After two days in ICU, Bertus has been discharged and went home in Holland without recurrence of tachycardia.
