INTRODUCTION Exact visualization of complex left atrial (LA) anatomy is crucial for safety and success rates when performing catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of our study was to validate the accuracy of integrating rotational angiography-based 3-dimensional (3D) reconstructions of LA and pulmonary vein (PV) anatomy into an electroanatomical mapping (EAM) system. METHODS AND RESULTS In 38 patients (62 +/- 8 years, 25 females) undergoing catheter ablation of paroxysmal (n… CONTINUE READING
