The purpose of this prospective observational study (registry) is to determine the acute success rate of a CFAE guided ablation procedure using a dedicated software and to determine the functionality and performance of the CFAE software in patients with a type of persistent AF in routine clinical practice.

This randomized prospective study compared three ablation strategies in patients with longstanding persistent atrial fibrillation (LPeAF). It also explored the best procedural endpoint fro...
The end point of catheter ablation at complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAE) was not established yet. Furthermore, incomplete CFAE ablation may have a potential to develop atrial ...
Objective: The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of complex fractionated atrial electrocardiograms (CFAEs) guided ablation to pulmonary vein isolation based ablat...
There is a need to compare the efficacy of PVI versus PVI plus catheter ablation, which includes ablation of complex fractionated atrial electrograms (CFAE) and linear lesions in the same ...
Specific Aim: This prospective randomized study aims to compare the impact of three different catheter ablation approaches on long-term procedure outcome in terms of arrhythmia recurrence ...
Despite the very promising initial results of clinical studies, catheter ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) remains a challenge in modern electrophysiology. On the basis of the hypothesiz...
Catheter ablation can terminate persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). However, atrial tachycardia (AT) often arises after termination of AF.
Catheter ablation reduces recurrence of atrial fibrillation and improves quality of life. Only few studies have assessed the effect of catheter ablation on long-term outcomes.
Hybrid ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) is a promising treatment strategy; however, data regarding its efficacy and safety are still limited.
During the last decade, ablation has increasingly been used in rhythm control management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Over time, experience and techniques have improved and indications f...
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.
A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)
A THROMBIN inhibitor which acts by binding and blocking thrombogenic activity and the prevention of thrombus formation. It is used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic EMBOLISM in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
The act of testing the software for compliance with a standard.
