BACKGROUND Ablation of long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) is highly variable, with differing techniques and outcomes. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to undertake a systematic review of the literature with regard to the impact of ablation technique on the outcomes of long-standing persistent AF ablation. METHODS A systematic search of the contemporary English scientific literature (from January 1, 1990 to June 1, 2009) in the PubMed database identified 32 studies on… CONTINUE READING
