INTRODUCTION The coronary sinus (CS) is a complex structure comprising a mesh of circumferential muscular fibers with oblique connections to both atria. We describe further evidence for the clinical importance of CS arrhythmogenicity in maintaining atrial fibrillation (AF) in humans. METHODS Since January 2004, following a sequential approach, the CS and the inferior left atrium were ablated in 144 patients with symptomatic drug refractory AF. Patients were included for analysis when this… CONTINUE READING
