The aim of the study is to evaluate the impact of atrial fibrillation ablation in patients presenting a brady-tachy syndrome on the AF burden.

The hypothesis of the study is that AF ablation prevents not only from AF episodes recurrence but also from bradycardic episodes.

Condition Intervention
Brady-tachy Syndrome Procedure: AF ablation + pacemaker implantation Procedure: Pacemaker implantation

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Af Ablation In Brady-Tachy Syndrome
