Title:
Acute effects and long-term outcome of pulmonary vein isolation in combination with electrogram-guided substrate ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation. 
Abstract:
Complex fractionated atrial electrographic (CFAE) catheter ablation is a new approach for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). It is unclear if acute results of this approach correspond to long-term outcome. The purpose of this study was to prospectively assess acute and long-term successes of an ablation approach combining pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) and ablation of CFAE areas for treatment of persistent AF. PVI and ablation of CFAE areas were performed in 35 patients with persistent A...    »
