AIMS We investigated the presence and clinical outcome of inducibility of atrial tachyarrhythmias after circumferential pulmonary vein isolation (CPVI) in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). METHODS AND RESULTS Sixty patients with symptomatic PAF underwent CPVI guided by 3D mapping and double Lasso technique. After achievement of CPVI, the(More)
