Due to good results, increasing standardization and lack of equivalent alternatives, catheter ablation has been established as an increasingly common procedure in clinical routine. This article describes common and necessary puncture techniques in catheter ablation (puncture of the groin vessels, transseptal puncture, pericardial puncture) and represents a practical instruction for the catheter laboratory. This article is part of a series of manuscripts presenting topics of interventional electrophysiology in the course of electrophysiology training.
