BACKGROUND Patients with a variety of clinical presentations undergo atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. Long-term ablation success rates can vary considerably. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to develop a clinical scoring system to predict long-term freedom from AF after ablation. METHODS We retrospectively derived the scoring system on a development cohort (DC) of 1125 patients undergoing AF ablation and tested it prospectively in a test cohort (TC) of 937 patients undergoing AF… CONTINUE READING
