They are generally benign; in rare situations, like in the presence of structural heart disease, they can have catastrophic consequences because of rapid heart rates.1 SVTs, if recurrent, can result in significant impairment in the quality of life.2 An electrophysiological study (EPS) is recommended for patients with symptomatic, paroxysmal SVT.3 Often, long-term medical therapy for SVTs is ineffective because of recurrent episodes despite the use of medications.4 Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) has become the treatment of choice due to its high primary success rates and low complication rates.5-7 The field of clinical cardiac electrophysiology
has evolved dramatically over the last 30 years, beginning with the first description of the His bundle (H) recording in 1969.8
He completed medical school at the University of Athens Medical School in Greece and completed his residency with the Lenox Hill Hospital Internal Medicine Program in New York, as well as a clinical cardiac electrophysiology
fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

"Topera's mapping technology has the potential to change the paradigm for how physicians approach treating people with atrial fibrillation," said John Miller, M.D., professor of medicine and director of clinical cardiac electrophysiology
at Indiana University Health." The ability to more accurately target the areas of the heart perpetuating atrial fibrillation is a significant advancement in the field of electrophysiology, which may allow us to treat more people with atrial fibrillation and lead to better health results."
