AIMS Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is an accepted treatment to relieve symptoms in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). We studied 3 year outcome after PVI guided by duty-cycled multi-electrode radiofrequency (RF) ablation (pulmonary vein ablation catheter, PVAC) and provided comparative data to outcome after conventional PVI (CPVI) using mapping with irrigated, point-per-point RF ablation. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and sixty-one consecutive patients with symptomatic paroxysmal or… CONTINUE READING
