  Purpose
The investigators have conducted a prospective, double-blind, randomized study to assess the comparative safety and efficacy of two different strategies, PVI plus Renal Denervation (RD) versus PVI plus GP ablation, in patients with atrial fibrillation. Results were assessed after follow-up of at least 1 year with the use of an implanted monitoring device (IMD).

Condition Intervention Phase
Atrial Fibrillation Hypertension Procedure: PVI+renal denervation Procedure: PVI + GP ablation Drug: Optimal medial therapy (OMT) Phase 2

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Freedom of AF or other atrial arrhythmias [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: June 2012
Study Completion Date: June 2013
Primary Completion Date: June 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: PVI+renal denervation+OMT Procedure: PVI+renal denervation
After AF ablation procedure, the angiogram of both renal arteries is performed via femoral access. After that the treatment catheter is introduced into each renal artery and is applied discrete, radiofrequency ablations lasting up to 2 min each and of 8 watts or less to obtain up to six ablations separated both longitudinally and rotationally within each renal artery. During ablation, the catheter system monitored tip temperature and impedance, altering radiofrequency energy delivery in response to a predetermined algorithm. After the procedure the control arterial angiogram should be done.
Drug: Optimal medial therapy (OMT)
Antiarrhythmic and antihypertensive therapy will be administered according to the guidelines
Active Comparator: PVI+GP ablation+OMT Procedure: PVI + GP ablation
To accomplish ganglionated plexi ablation, LA target sites were identified as the anatomic locations where vagal reflexes were evoked by transcatheter high-frequency stimulation (HFS). Rectangular electrical stimuli were delivered at a frequency of 20-50 Hz, output amplitude 15 V and pulse duration of 10 ms, for 5 sec (Stimulator B-53, Biotok Inc, Russia).
Drug: Optimal medial therapy (OMT)
Antiarrhythmic and antihypertensive therapy will be administered according to the guidelines
