BACKGROUND Robotic systems are becoming increasingly common in complex ablation procedures. We conducted systematic review and meta-analysis on the procedural outcomes of Magnetic Navigation System (MNS) in comparison to conventional catheter navigation for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. METHODS An electronic search was performed using multiple databases between 2002 & 2012. Outcomes were: acute and long-term success, complications, total procedure, ablation and fluoroscopic times… CONTINUE READING
