Rate of Permanent Pulmonary Vein Isolation of EAS-AC Compared to EAM Guided Radiofrequency Ablation [ Time Frame: 3 Months ]
Number of initially isolated pulmonary veins that remain isolated at a 3 month remapping. The unit of measure is treated pulmonary veins (PVs).

Post-Market Randomized Trial: Endoscopically- Guided Ablation vs. Radiofrequency Ablation
Post-Market Randomized Controlled Trial: Endoscopically- Guided Ablation vs. Radiofrequency Ablation GuideD by Electroanatomical Mapping to Achieve Permanent Pulmonary Vein Isolation (En-GARDE)

To compare the safety and chronic Pulmonary Vein isolation of 2 ablation types.

  1. visually guided ablation (VGA) using the EAS-AC and
  2. radiofrequency ablation
The goal of the study was to compare two interventions, visually-guided endoscopic ablation to standard-of-care radiofrequency (RF) ablation. The study was terminated early by the Sponsor for business reasons before any participants were randomized or treated with RF ablation.
