OBJECTIVES To investigate long-term efficacy of catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) and the impact of ablating complex or fractionated electrograms (CFEs) in addition to pulmonary vein isolation and linear lesions in persistent AF (PeAF). METHODS Consecutive cases from 2002-2007 were analysed. All the patients underwent a wide-area… CONTINUE READING
