OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence and clinical significance of macroreentrant atrial tachycardia (AT) after left atrial (LA) circumferential ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF). BACKGROUND Linear ablation for AF may result in macroreentrant AT. METHODS Three hundred forty-nine patients (age 54 +/- 11 years) underwent LA circumferential ablation for AF (paroxysmal in 227). Ablation lines were created around the left-sided and right-sided pulmonary veins… CONTINUE READING
