Electrogram-guided substrate ablation with or without pulmonary vein isolation in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation. 
Abstract:
AIMS: Ablation of complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAEs) is a new approach for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). The purpose of the study was to assess the efficacy of CFAE ablation as a stand-alone strategy in patients with persistent AF and to compare it with a combined approach of CFAE ablation and pulmonary vein isolation (PVI).
