  Purpose

The atrial fibrillation is the most frequent confusions of the heart rhythm: his preValencia increases with the age, and the investigators consider that beyond 65 years, 5 % of the population is affected by this arrhythmia. It entails a greater risk of morbidity (thromboembolic accident and cardiac insufficiency) and of cardiovascular mortality (mortality increased by a factor 1,7 - 2) independents of the causal pathology or the associated risk factors. For all these reasons, it raises a real problem of public health.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Success of ablation [ Time Frame: after 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The principal criterion of the medical evaluation is the success of ablation defined by the absence of repetition of AF (or the persistence of the sinusal rhythm) after the 3 months period following the procedures of ablation based on ECG or holter registration. These patients are likely to be able to profit from another procedure of ablation so necessary.
