INTRODUCTION The additional benefit of contact force (CF) technology during pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) to improve mid-term clinical outcome is unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS Eligible patients with symptomatic paroxysmal AF were enrolled in this prospective trial, comparing circular antral catheter ablation (guided by Carto 3 System, Biosense Webster) using either a new open-irrigated CF catheter (SmartTouch Thermocool, Biosense Webster) (CF group) or… CONTINUE READING
