Atrial Tachycardia After Ablation of Persistent Atrial Fibrillation: Identification of the Critical Isthmus With a Combination of Multielectrode Activation Mapping and Targeted Entrainment Mapping
Background—Atrial tachycardia (AT) that develops after ablation of atrial fibrillation often poses a more difficult clinical situation than the index arrhythmia. This study details the use of anExpand
