AIMS To assess the effects of low-dose (LD) and high-dose (HD) ablation on acute and chronic success in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). While the concept of visually guided pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) has been established little is known on energy titration using laser ablation. METHODS AND RESULTS In 60 patients with AF, PVI using the endoscopic ablation system (EAS) was performed in two groups. Visually guided ablation was carried out after obtaining optimal tissue contact with 5… CONTINUE READING
