Pulmonary Vein Isolation using “Contact Force” Ablation: The Effect on Dormant Conduction and Long-term Freedom from Recurrent AF. A Prospective Study

Heartrhythmjournal: July 25, 2014



Atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is associated with PV to left atrium re-conduction. Effective lesion creation necessitates adequate contact force between the ablation catheter and myocardium.


We prospectively studied the utility of contact force guided ablation on immediate and long-term outcomes. Read More
