BACKGROUND Vagal denervation during pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) may reduce paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) recurrences. Valid predictors of late PAF recurrence after PVI were examined. METHODS AND RESULTS Successful segmental (S-PVI) or circumferential PVI (C-PVI) was achieved in 120 consecutive PAF patients. The 24-h Holter recordings were obtained before and after PVI. Logistic regression analysis was performed to determine independent predictors of PAF recurrence among the patient… CONTINUE READING
