Brief Summary:
Prospective data collection of patients undergoing Atrial Fibrillation Ablation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Atrial Fibrillation Procedure: Ablation

Detailed Description:
Clinicians who have experience using low dose fluoroscopy including use of Carto Mapping system will consent patients to allow data collection and a 12 month f/up visit to track adverse events. Clinicians will follow a protocol which will be similar to their standard of care for ablations.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Atrial Fibrillation [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Determine Atrial Fibrillation burden at 12 month visit by reviewing monitoring systems that capture this data

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fluoroscopic Usage [ Time Frame: post operative ]
    To determine total amount of radiation used at each procedure by estimation of mGy

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients who have persistant or paroxysmal atrial fibrillation

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient meets accepted AHA/ACC/HRS guideline indications for catheter ablation of paroxysmal or persistent AF
  • First or subsequent ablation procedures may be included
  • Age 18-75

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Known venous malformations or implanted instrumentation (IVC filter)
  • Known PV stenosis
  • Unable to provide consent
  • H/O mechanical mitral valve replacement (unable to rely on EA mapping only)
  • Documented left atrial thrombus
  • Prior ASD repair Pregnancy
  • NYHA >=3
  • EF less than 35%
  • CHF within 90 daysRecent MI or coronary revascularization within 90 days
  • NOTE: H/O implanted pacemaker or ICD with transvenous leads will NOT be an exclusion criteria, but we will track patients treated with pre-existing transvenous leads with the hypothesis that although fluoroscopy use will be higher in these patients compared to those without leads, but still lower than conventionally treated patients.
  • Patients who are undergoing non- standard of care ablations ie, Cyro or FIRM ablations
