OBJECTIVES This study sought to compare catheter ablation with rate control for persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) in heart failure (HF). BACKGROUND The optimal therapy for AF in HF is unclear. Drug-based rhythm control has not proved clinically beneficial. Catheter ablation improves cardiac function in patients with HF, but impact on physiological performance has not been formally evaluated in a randomized trial. METHODS In a randomized, open-label, blinded-endpoint clinical trial, adults… CONTINUE READING
