OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the predictor of non-pulmonary vein (PV) ectopic beats initiating paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). BACKGROUND Non-PV ectopic beats can initiate PAF in some patients and play an important role in the recurrence of PAF after PV isolation. Information on the predictors of non-PV ectopic beats initiating PAF is unknown. METHODS This study included 293 patients (215 men and 78 women, age 60 +/- 14 years) with clinically documented drug… CONTINUE READING
