BACKGROUND Adenosine (ADO) can uncover dormant conduction following pulmonary vein (PV) isolation. We sought to identify the value of dormant conduction for predicting atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence and chronic PV reconnection. METHODS One hundred fifty-two patients (80 male; age 60 ± 11 years) undergoing PV isolation for AF were studied. After PV… CONTINUE READING
