BACKGROUND Approximately 30% of patients undergoing pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for atrial fibrillation (AF) have clinical recurrence of AF, and a great majority of these patients have recovery of vein conduction. Adenosine can be associated with acute recovery of conduction to the pulmonary veins immediately after isolation. However, it is not known whether this is prognostic for permanent recovery of conduction or recurrence of AF. METHODS Patients with paroxysmal AF underwent PVI, with… CONTINUE READING
