Location of epicardial adipose tissue affects the efficacy of a combined dominant frequency and complex fractionated atrial electrogram ablation of atrial fibrillation.
BACKGROUND Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is located adjacent to high dominant frequency (DF) sites. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to clarify the relationship between the EAT location and efficacy ofExpand
