Role of Subsequent Atrial Tachycardia in Mechanisms of Persistent AF
The Prognostic Role of Subsequent Atrial Tachycardias Occurring After Atrial Fibrillation Termination: A Prospective Randomized Trial
In this study, the investigators aim to examine the prognostic role of subsequent Atrial Tachycardias (ATs) in the mechanisms of atrial fibrillation (AF). Therefore, the investigators compare patients who were randomly assigned to either undergo cardioversion after AF has been terminated to AT or further ablation until the achievement of sinus rhythm.

Patients with persistent AF
Atrial Fibrillation
Procedure: Catheter ablation of subsequent atrial tachycardia
  • Group A: cardioversion at AT
    after achievement of AT, pts were cardioverted
  • Group B: ablation to SR
    After AT has been achieved, all subsequent AT were ablated with the endpoint of procedural SR termination
    Intervention: Procedure: Catheter ablation of subsequent atrial tachycardia
