Radiofrequency catheter ablation is a safe and effective treatment option for atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). A nonirrigated ablation catheter used in a temperature-controlled mode is traditionally used for AVNRT ablation due to the shallow lesion depth required for successful slow-pathway ablation. In this case, a nonirrigated ablation catheter established inadequate lesions to ablate the slow pathway successfully. The adoption of an irrigated contact-force ablation catheter used in a power-controlled mode was necessary to provide higher power and possibly create a deeper lesion to ablate the slow pathway successfully, thus eliminating AVNRT inducibility in this patient.
