Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation of pulmonary vein potentials has been shown to eliminate atrial fibrillation in a subset of patients characterized by frequent and repetitive paroxysms of atrial fibrillation. However, pulmonary vein disconnection has had only limited success at curing patients with persistent atrial fibrillation. In those patients, left… (More)
