Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Freedom for documented, symptomatic atrial fibrillation [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Episodes of AF will be monitored during the follow-up period and the rate of subjects with no documented, symptomatic episodes of AF in follow-up will be compared.


Estimated Enrollment: 450
Study Start Date: January 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Primary Completion Date: October 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
