LA v. RA EGF Consistency in Persistent AF

Examine patterns of FC between the LA and RA among all-comers with AF. Methods Data was prospectively collected from patients with paroxysmal, persistent, and long-standing persistent AF, who underwent EGF mapping with a 64-electrode basket catheter and catheter ablation for AF. For each patient, a series of 1 minute EGF recordings were taken post-PVI in multiple standardized locations in both LA and RA to optimize endocardial coverage. Recordings always occurred prior to any EGF-identified source ablations, if clinically relevant sources were detected post-PVI. Mean FC from these recordings were taken and averaged per recording location and then averaged per atrium.
