Aims Adenosine had been reported to unmask dormant conduction and thus identify pulmonary vein at risk of reconnection. However, the role of adjunctive adenosine infusion after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) on long-term arrhythmia-free survival was still contentious. The purpose of the present meta-analysis was to assess the association of adenosine testing with long-term ablation success in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) (i.e. freedom from AF recurrence). Methods and Results We… CONTINUE READING
