In this article, the authors aim at preventing or lowering the risk for the development of lower limb deep vein thrombosis as well as pulmonary thrombosis among Chinese patients who have been treated on rapid ventricular arrhythmia through the radiofrequency catheter ablation procedure. Precisely, for a couple of decades, the use of radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) technique has been used for the treatment of tachyarrhythmias, and it is perceived as the most effective method of treating this type of condition. However, through the process of treating this health condition, the procedure increases the risk for the development of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. However, as a way of reducing or lowering the risk for the development of these conditions, there are numerous approaches that are embraced in the process. For example, in order to lower the risk of thromboembolism procedures such as intraprocedural intracardiac echocardiography, administration of platelet inhibitors, and administration of intravenous (IV) infusion of unfractionated heparin (Li et al., 2016).
In order to establish the extent to which the administration of radio
