BACKGROUND Recurrent atrial tachyarrhythmias occur as a result of residual atrial arrhythmogenic substrates after atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. In patients with AF, electrograms with reduced amplitudes indicate diseased myocardium. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between the distribution of low-voltage areas and the type of induced atrial tachyarrhythmias. METHODS Our prospective observational study enrolled 152 consecutive AF patients scheduled… CONTINUE READING
