Cryoballoon Pulmonary Vein Isolation vs. Radiofrequency Pulmonary Vein Isolation With Additional Right Atrial Linear Ablation for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation: Prospective Randomized Trial (CRAPAF Trial)
Cryoballoon ablation is proven to be effective in pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, and it can reduce the procedure time compared to conventional radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation. Recently, high-power short-duration RF ablation has been known to reduce procedure time remarkably, and it can eliminate extra-pulmonary vein foci, which cannot be treated by Cryoballoon ablation. The aim of this study is to compare Cryoballoon ablation and...
Although circumferential pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) has been considered as the cornerstone for atrial fibrillation ablation, there has been a substantial recurrence rate. The investigators designed a prospectively randomized study to evaluate whether additional atrial ganglionated plexi ablation guided by the SUMO technology improves the clinical outcome in patients with persistent AF.
Unipolar Voltage Map and Computed Tomogram Myocardial Thickness Map Guided pulmOnary Vein iSolaTion vs. Empirical Pulmonary Vein Isolation in Catheter Ablation for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (UTMOST AF)
New parameters or methods, such as ablation index, have been developed for the quantification of high-frequency energy used in pulmonary vein isolation, but there is no known method for atrial fibrillation considering individual differences in atrial tissue. The atrium is only 1/3 of the thickness of the ventricle and is thinner in women and older than men or young people. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of radiofrequency energy therapy usin...
Multicenter 1:1 randomized study. Two atrial fibrillation ablation strategies are compared: 1) conventional ablation using point-by-point radiofrequency applications with power 40 W guided by LSI > 6 or AI > 500 on the anterior aspect of pulmonary veins and power 25 W guided by LSI >5 or AI >350 on the posterior wall near the esophagus; 2) point-by-point RF applications with power set at 70 W and duration 9-10 s. The main objective of the trial is the incidence of esophageal le...
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 ablation in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). Hypothesis: CFAE guided ablation will increase atrial fibrillation free survival compared to a PVI guided ablation. Patient population: Patients with persistent atrial fibrillation will be randomized based on a 2:1 ratio into on...
We conduct a randomized study comparing the safety and effectiveness of two interventional ablation techniques for treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation: the segmental pulmonary vein ablation approach, (1) with empiric isolation of all pulmonary veins or (2) Segmental Isolation of the arrhythmogenic pulmonary vein(s)
In the POWDER 1 study, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) patients undergoing conventional contact force (CF)-guided PVI were investigated. Patients were randomized between continuing previously ineffective antiarrhythmic drug therapy (ADT) or stopping ADT at the end of the blanking period. This trial, showed an added value of ADT after ablation (in support of 'hybrid rhythm control' as an alternative treatment strategy for AF in some patients). In the POWDER 2 trial, an anal...
Catheter ablation in the treatment of atrial fibrillation (i.e. pulmonary vein isolation) is now the most effective method of prevention of arrhythmia recurrence. Use of 3D electroanatomical system is now a golden standard. Background hypothesis is that automatic algorithm collecting ablation points during pulmonary vein isolation (with certain catheter stability time, range of motion, and catheter-tissue contact force) prevents forming the gaps in the ablation line, thus ...
Comparison of Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Isolation and Complex Pulmonary Vein Isolation Additional Linear Ablation for Recurred Atrial Fibrillation After Previous Catheter Ablation: Prospective Randomized Trial (CALRA-AF)
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes depending on catheter ablation strategy for repeat ablation procedure among the patients with recurred atrial fibrillation after de novo catheter ablation. After randomization, we will conduct circumferential pulmonary vein isolation alone in a group, and additional posterior box isolation and anterior linear ablation in the other group. Non-pulmonary vein foci ablation will be done in all patients. We will compare c...
Comparison of Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Isolation Alone Versus Linear Ablation in Addition to Circumferential Pulmonary Vein Isolation for Catheter Ablation in Persistent Atrial Fibrillation: Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes depending on catheter ablation strategy for persistent atrial fibrillation. After randomization, investigators will conduct circumferential pulmonary vein isolation alone in a group, and additional posterior box isolation and anterior linear ablation in the other group. Investigators will compare clinical recurrence rate, complication rate, and procedure time, etc.
The chronic success rate, defined as freedom from any atrial tachyarrhythmias will increase from 35% to 60% by ablation of complex fragmented atrial electrograms potentials in addition to pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) as compared to PVI alone in patients with long-standing persistent AF.
Cryoballoon Pulmonary Vein Isolation vs. Radiofrequency Pulmonary Vein Isolation With Additional Right Atrial Linear Ablation for Valvular Atrial Fibrillation: Prospective Randomized Trial (CRAVA Trial)
Cryoballoon ablation is proven to be effective in pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation. We previously reported that the rhythm outcome of radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablations are equivalent in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation and in those with surgically and hemodynamically corrected valvular atrial fibrillation. In contrast, the Cryoballoon ablation can reduce the procedure times, it cannot conduct empirical li...
This is a clinical study where the investigators will assess the efficacy of a single cryoballoon application per vein guided by a multipolar recording catheter as compared with a conventional technique with 2 cryoballoon applications for pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF).
Objective: This prospective study aims to examine the outcome of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation after permanent pulmonary vein antrum isolation or pulmonary vein antrum isolation plus left atrial posterior wall isolation is proven by a repeat procedure. The study will be conducted in patients with different types of AF: paroxysmal AF (PAF) and non-PAF (Persistent AF and Long Standing Persistent AF). Hypothesis: In addition to permanent pulmonary vein antrum isolation, prove...
Cryoballoon ablation is proven to be effective in pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. However, it is not certain that cryoablation is effective and safe in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation, because of higher chance of recurrence compared to paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation vs. cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation with additional r...
Investigator initiated, randomized controlled trial of two radiofrequency (RF)ablation protocols currently performed in the electrophysiology lab, but have not been studied prospectively to identify which, if either technique, is superior for individuals with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF). Two-hundred subjects will be consecutively enrolled and randomized to either pulmonary vein isolation only or pulmonary vein isolation plus posterior left atrial wall isolation
This study is a prospective, multicenter, randomized controlled study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the LARIAT System to percutaneously isolate and ligate the Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) from the Left Atrium (LA) as an adjunct to planned pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) catheter ablation in the treatment of subjects with symptomatic persistent or longstanding persistent Atrial Fibrillation (AF).
A three-pronged approach to evaluate long term success of non-paroxysmal ablation when using a: 1. specified low voltage-directed with pulmonary vein isolation (LD+PVI) approach compared to , 2. empiric posterior wall isolation with pulmonary vein isolation (PW+PVI) approach compared to 3. an approach of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) alone.
The POWER FAST I pilot study is a unicentric, observational, non-randomized controlled clinical study. In the control group pulmonary veins isolation was performded in consecutive patients with irrigated radiofrequency cateters without contact force-sensing capabilities and using conventional low-power and long-duration radiofrequency parameters (20-30 W, 30-60 s) under continuous intracardiac-echo image and esophageal temperature monitoring. The study group consist of consecut...
Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia with a lifetime risk for development of over 20%. Pulmonary vein isolation is now established as therapy of choice for patients with symptomatic atrial fibrillation. It is well known that this interventional therapy inevitably modulates the intracardiac autonomic nervous system. While this ablation might alter atrial electrophysiology beneficially, the impact on ventricular electrophysiology remains unclear. The investiga...
This is a multi-site, randomized, investigator-initiated pilot study to evaluate the efficacy of investigational techniques to reduce fluoroscopy time or radiation dose and the amount of radio opaque contrast used during a cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation procedure for atrial fibrillation. One group of subjects will have the procedure performed with intracardiac echo maneuvers to assess cryoballoon occlusion of the pulmonary vein and will be compared to a group of su...
The aim of this study was to assess the long-term success rates of pulmonary vein isolation using first and second generation cryoballoons in patients with paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation.
This is a prospective single-center randomized trial comparing the efficacy and safety of PV cryoablation with the Arctic Front® catheter versus the standard PV isolation using radiofrequency irrigated tip catheters. The efficacy of both strategies will be evaluated from a clinical point of view and from the detection and quantification of AF episodes by means of the Reveal XT® implantable loop recorder.
