Alcoholic ablation has been established as a complementary technique for treating refractory atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation and macroreentrant tachycardia, as well as ventricular substrates such as extrasitolia or ventricular tachycardia. There is a growing need for training and be able to incorporate this technique in electrophysiology laboratories, but for its effective and safe execution, a deep knowledge of the anatomy and the different methods of alcoholization is required, as well as the possible complications of the procedure.
