Total Fluoroscopy Time [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
The fluoroscopy time will be measured for each phase (access, mapping, ablation, and validation) of the procedure and summed to derive the total.

  • Total Procedure Time [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    The procedure time will be measured for each phase (access, mapping, ablation, and validation) of the procedure and summed to derive the total.
  • Acute Procedural Success [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    Acute success will be defined as confirmation of pulmonary vein isolation by entrance block, exit block, and/or periostial block of all targeted pulmonary veins.
  • Mean Number of Radiofrequency (RF) Applications [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    RF application is defined as the number of times RF energy is delivered during the procedure.
  • Total Radiofrequency (RF) Time [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    Total RF time is defined as the total time RF is delivered during the procedure.
  • Procedure Time [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    The procedure time will be measured for each phase (access, mapping, ablation, and validation) of the procedure.
  • Acute Success [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    Acute success will be measured via confirmation of pulmonary vein isolation method.
  • Safety [ Time Frame: Within 7 days of the procedure ]
    Procedural complications, electrocardiogram abnormalities and adverse events.
  • Number of Radiofrequency (RF) Applications [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    RF application will be measured by number of times delivered during the procedure.
  • Total Radiofrequency (RF) Time [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    Total RF time will be measured for the total time RF is delivered during the procedure.

CARTO® 3 System and Real Time Intracardiac Ultrasound
CARTO® 3 System and Real Time Intracardiac Ultrasound for Ablation of Drug Refractory Recurrent Symptomatic Paroxysmal AF: Acute Procedural Outcomes Study
This is a prospective, multicenter, non-randomized observational study of subjects 18 years and older undergoing RF ablation with drug refractory recurrent symptomatic paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (AF).
This study is purposed to measure "real world" acute procedural outcomes (procedural efficiency and acute safety) associated with use of the CARTO® 3 System and real time intracardiac ultrasound in a clinical setting in subjects with drug refractory recurrent symptomatic paroxysmal AF.
Observational
Time Perspective: Prospective
