BACKGROUND The relevance of focal triggers in persistent atrial fibrillation (PerAF) and long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (LSPAF) has not been previously investigated. OBJECTIVE We prospectively evaluated the prevalence and distribution of AF triggers in patients referred for catheter ablation of PerAF and LSPAF. METHODS We analyzed consecutive patients undergoing first time AF ablation who underwent a standardized trigger protocol including cardioversion of induced or… CONTINUE READING
