ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01008722
First received: November 5, 2009
Last updated: December 10, 2013
Last verified: December 2013
  Purpose

The study is conducted in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing clinically prescribed ablation. The study hypothesis is that ablation at specific sites that are identified to 'drive' the atrial fibrillation may improve the success of the ablation procedure.


Condition
Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial Tachyarrhythmia

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
