INTRODUCTION Atrial fibrillation (AF) is often refractory to antiarrhythmic drugs, and patients who are intolerant of AF may require the maze operation for cure. As a less invasive alternative, a catheter-based, right atrial compartmentalization procedure was evaluated. METHODS AND RESULTS Twelve patients with AF refractory to Class I and III antiarrhythmic drugs were studied. Four linear right atrial radiofrequency ablations were performed, from superior to inferior vena cava in the… CONTINUE READING
