Surgical treatment of focal atrial tachycardia originating from an atrial appendage in children.
The study drew on data from 5,379 patients over six years who were enrolled in the RATE Registry (Registry of Atrial Tachycardia and Atrial Fibrillation Episodes), a registry that monitors the incidence of atrial tachycardia and atrial fibrillation (AT/AF) of any duration (long or short) in patients who have pacemakers or implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs).
Ablation of SVT targets specific electro-anatomical substrates which include the slow pathway in Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry Tachycardia (AVNRT), the accessory pathway in Atrioventricular Reentrant Tachycardia (AVRT) or an ectopic focus in Atrial Tachycardia (AT)3-6.

It should be removed by surgical excision because of risk of atrial arrhythmia like PAC which may degenerate into atrial tachycardia or atrial fibrillation, LAA clot formation and embolic stroke.
