Title:
Radiofrequency ablation of complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAE): preferential sites of acute termination and regularization in paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation. 
Abstract:
INTRODUCTION: Complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAE) have been described as a new target for ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). This prospective study evaluates the acute effects of CFAE ablation in patients with paroxysmal or persistent AF and analyzes the preferential anatomic sites where these effects occur. METHODS AND RESULTS: Ablation of CFAE was performed in 66 symptomatic patients (mean age of 58 +/- 12 years) with paroxysmal (n = 36) or persistent AF (n = 30). Termination or...    »
