Femoral vascular complications remain a significant complication of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation as a result of peri-procedural anticoagulation protocols. We investigated the effect of three different anti-coagulation regimens on the incidence of femoral vascular complications following AF ablation over a 4 year period. We performed 603 catheter… CONTINUE READING
