The surgical atrial maze procedure has provided proof that atrial fibrillation can be cured by performing atrial incisions based on anatomical and electrophysiological principles. Preliminary reports of attempts at radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation utilizing an anatomy-based "linear incision" method have shown the feasibility of the method. However, postprocedural atrial fibrillation recurrence has been common and in addition new, uniform tachycardias have developed in… CONTINUE READING
