Title:
Left atrial tachycardia after circumferential pulmonary vein ablation for atrial fibrillation: incidence, electrophysiological characteristics, and results of radiofrequency ablation. 
Abstract:
AIMS: To investigate the incidence, electrophysiological properties, and ablation results for left atrial (LA) tachycardia as a sequel to the circumferential pulmonary vein ablation (CPVA) for atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty-seven patients with AF underwent CPVA. Sustained LA tachycardia developed in 21/67 (31%) patients and in 16/21 symptomatic patients 55 LA tachycardias (3.4+/-2.4 per patient) were mapped: 18 (33%) tachycardias were related to macro-re-entry around the mi...    »
