Significant recurrence of atrial tachyarrhythmias are observed after the surgical Cox Maze procedure (CMP). We retrospectively enrolled 11 consecutive patients who had atrial tachyarrhythmias (ATAs) that recurred after a biatrial CMP and underwent catheter ablation. Information including the site of any incomplete lesions and the etiology of the clinical ATAs was shared with the surgical team as feedback. In a total of 11 patients, 12 clinical ATAs were identified. They consisted of 2 atrial… Expand
