Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Electrical isolation of all 4 PVs, or in the event of a common PV, the clinical equivalent of all PVs, by the end of index procedure [ Time Frame: 30 min post ablation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Acute procedural success and freedom from recurrence of symptomatic AF, AFL, and AT lasting longer than 30 seconds through 9 months of follow-up after a 3 month blanking period. Re-treatment for AF with ablation after 3 months is a failure [ Time Frame: 12 months post ablation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Device-related early onset primary SAEs occurring within 7 days of the index procedure [ Time Frame: 7 days post ablation ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: March 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
