OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine whether patients with paroxysmal "lone" atrial fibrillation (AF) have an abnormal atrial substrate. BACKGROUND While "AF begets AF," prompt termination to prevent electrical remodeling does not prevent disease progression. METHODS Twenty-five patients with paroxysmal lone AF, without arrhythmia in the week prior, and 25 reference patients with left-sided accessory pathways were studied. Multipolar catheters placed at the lateral right… CONTINUE READING
