No difference between 3 methods of catheter ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation

from 2 Minute Medicine

In patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, percutaneous catheter ablation has been found to be an effective treatment, especially in individuals who are not well managed using antiarrhythmic drugs. Catheter ablation is more challenging in individuals with persistent atrial fibrillation and has not been found to be as effective. A procedure known as substrate modification is often performed in addition to pulmonary-vein isolation in order to improve outcomes in these patients. This study compared three different methods of catheter ablation to manage persistent atrial fibrillation. more
