Background—Pharmacological ventricular rate control is an acceptable atrial fibrillation (AF) therapy limited by systemic toxicity. We postulate that focal catheter-based drug delivery into the atrioventricular nodal (AVN) region may effectively control ventricular rate during AF without systemic toxicity. This study evaluated the effects of focally… CONTINUE READING
