  Purpose

The mainstay of treatment for atrial fibrillation remains pharmacological;however,catheter ablation has increasingly been used over the last decades. The relative merits of each strategy have not been extensively studied. Our study was designed to determine if catheter ablation is a feasible option as first-line therapy for treating patients with symptomatic AF.
