Pulmonary vein isolation by duty-cycled bipolar and unipolar antrum ablation using a novel multielectrode ablation catheter system: first clinical results


The electrical disconnection of the pulmonary veins (PV) plays an important role in the ablation strategy of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). Circumferential antral ablation with a conventional ablation technique using a steerable ablation catheter is sometimes difficult to perform and does not always result in isolation of the targeted PV. Patients… (More)
