INTRODUCTION Some conflicting results of the efficacy of the inducibility test used in the catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) have been reported. The aim of this study was to investigate the inducibility and efficacy of circumferential ablation with pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) in patients with paroxysmal AF and its relationship to the atrial substrate. METHODS AND RESULTS This study consisted of 88 patients with paroxysmal AF who underwent catheter ablation. Electroanatomic… CONTINUE READING
