BACKGROUND Risk stratification tools are needed to select the right candidates for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). Both the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores have utility in predicting AF-related outcomes and guiding anticoagulation treatment. OBJECTIVE We sought to determine whether these risk scores predict long-term outcomes after AF ablation and whether one risk score provides comparatively superior performance. METHODS CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores were calculated in 2179… CONTINUE READING
