  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Limited enrollment; recurrence rate of AF was slightly higher than other trials indicated that the study sample may be a high-risk population.
