Electrophysiologically demonstrated complete conduction block at the level of the veno-atrial junction is preferable as the endpoint of pulmonary vein (PV) ablation rather than circumferential periostial radiofrequency delivery. Knowledge of the individual anatomy of the PVs and the left atrium (LA), appropriate positioning of circular mapping catheters, and the electrophysiology of PV activation in addition to effective ablation tools is necessary to achieve this endpoint.
