3.1 NICE has published a clinical guideline on AF and interventional procedures guidance on several procedures for AF, with or without cardiac surgery. NICE has also published interventional procedures guidance on percutaneous (non-thoracoscopic) epicardial catheter radiofrequency ablation for ventricular tachycardia. For more information see our website.
NICE has produced information on this procedure for patients and carers ('Understanding NICE guidance'). It explains the nature of the procedure and the guidance issued by NICE, and has been written with patient consent in mind.
