Combined effect of pulmonary vein isolation and ablation of cardiac autonomic nerves for atrial fibrillation.


This study was designed to determine whether endocardial high-frequency stimulation at the pulmonary vein (PV) antrums can localize cardiac autonomic ganglionated plexi (GP) and whether ablation at these sites can evoke a vagal response and provide a long-term benefit after PV isolation (PVI) for atrial fibrillation (AF). Radiofrequency ablation of each PV… (More)
