BACKGROUND Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is a well-established treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF), with contact force (CF)-sensing catheters joining 3-dimensional mapping systems and image integration as technological advancements over the last decade. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to analyze trends in radiation exposure for AF ablation over the last 12 years at our center. METHODS We reviewed prospectively collected data of 2344 consecutive PVI procedures for either… CONTINUE READING
