Selective atrial vagal denervation guided by evoked vagal reflex to treat patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate whether selective radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation of the atrial sites in which high-frequency stimulation induces vagal reflexes prevents paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS AND RESULTS Ten patients with episodes suggestive of vagal-induced paroxysmal AF and no heart disease were selected for… (More)
