BACKGROUND Lone atrial fibrillation (AF) may reflect a subclinical cardiomyopathy that persists after sinus rhythm (SR) restoration, providing a substrate for AF recurrence. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the effect of restoring SR by catheter ablation on left ventricular (LV) function and energetics in patients with AF but no significant comorbidities. METHODS Fifty-three patients with symptomatic paroxysmal or persistent AF and without significant valvular disease, uncontrolled… CONTINUE READING
