|Official Title:||Effect of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on Short and Long-Term Maintenance of Sinus Rhythm After Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation|
|Study Start Date :||November 2008|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||December 2009|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||October 2011|
Experimental: Fish Oil, Ablation, Sinus Rhythm
Patients in the treatment arm will receive omega-3 fatty acids (EPA+DHA 4 gram/day) for 4 weeks before and 3 months after the ablation procedure.
Drug: LOVAZA Omega 3-acid ethyl esters
Treatment with omega-3 fatty acids (4g/day) for 4 weeks before and 3 months after radiofrequency catheter ablation for AF.
Other Names:Drug: LOVAZA
(EPA+DHA 4 gram/day) for 4 weeks before and 3 months after the ablation procedure.
Placebo Comparator: placebo, Ablation, sinus rhythm
Patients in the control arm will not receive any omega-3 fatty acids. However they will receive placebo.
Control group will receive placebo before & after ablation.
- Number of Participants With Normal Sinus Rhythm (Freedom From Atrial Arrhythmias) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Freedom from atrial arrhythmias at 6 months will be defined as absence of any atrial arrhythmias with or without antiarrhythmic drug (AAD) therapy as shown in the two lines
