Brief Summary:

To obtain data for the Rhythmia™ Mapping System in conjunction with Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated (OI) Catheters for ablation of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (PAF) according to current international and local guidelines.

Primary objective: To assess acute and long-term outcomes for the Rhythmia Mapping System in conjunction with Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated Ablation Catheters to treat de novo Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation. De Novo PAF is defined as subjects undergoing first ablation procedure for PAF with no prior left atrial ablation (RF, Cryo, Surgical).

  • IntellaMap Orion Catheter

CONTROL DEVICE -- There are no control devices in this study

STUDY DESIGN -- Prospective, non-randomized, multicenter (global), post approval clinical study (PAS). All subjects fitting the enrollment criteria, signing the consent and undergoing the index procedure with the study devices will be followed up for three years to complete the PAS design mandated from the FDA to collect post-market data for Boston Scientific Open-Irrigated Catheters and will be followed for three years.

PLANNED NUMBER OF SUBJECTS -- The study will enroll 415 subjects.

PLANNED NUMBER OF SITES / COUNTRIES -- The study is global (US, EU, Asia-Pacific) with 25-50 centers. A minimum of 50% of the sites will be selected from the US. No study site will be allowed to contribute more than 41 subjects (10% of the 415 enrollments requirement).

FOLLOW-UP SCHEDULE -- Study Follow-ups are at: pre-discharge, 1 month (phone check), 3 months (blanking period), 6 months (phone check), 12 months, 24 months and 36 months.

STUDY DURATION -- Study is expected to be completed in approximately five years (12-24 month enrollment period with three year follow-up).

PARTICIPANT DURATION -- The study duration for each subject is expected to be approximately three years.

Intervention Details:
  • Device: Boston Scientific Open Irrigated Ablation Catheters
    The BSC Open-Irrigated catheters are designed to deliver RF energy to catheter tip electrode for cardiac ablation. The BSC OI catheters incorporate an open-irrigated cooling mechanism through a tip that is partitioned into two chambers. The proximal chamber circulates normal saline (0.9 %) within the tip to cool the proximal electrode and mitigate overheating while the distal chamber allows the fluid to flow through six irrigation holes into the patient's vasculature, thereby cooling the tip/tissue interface.


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety event-free rate [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

    The primary safety endpoint is defined as the safety event-free rate at 12 months post-procedure.

    Primary safety events will consist of a composite of acute primary safety events (events occurring within seven days post-procedure or hospital discharge, whichever is later), and chronic primary safety events (events occurring through 3 or 12 months post-procedure).


  2. Event Free Rate (Primary) [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]

    The primary effectiveness endpoint is defined as the event-free rate at 12 months post-procedure.

    Primary effectiveness events are defined as:

    • Acute procedural failure
    • More than one repeat procedure during the blanking period (90 days post index procedure)
    • Documented atrial fibrillation, or new onset of atrial flutter or atrial tachycardia event (≥ 30 seconds in duration from an event monitor or Holter, or from a 10 second 12-lead EKG) between 91 days and 365 days post index procedure
    • Any of the following interventions for atrial fibrillation, or new onset of atrial flutter or atrial tachycardia between 91 days and 365 days post index procedure:
    • Repeat procedure
    • Cardioversion
    • Prescribed any AAD*

      • AADs for endpoint will consist of all Class I/III and any Class II/IV medications taken for control of AF/AT/AFL recurrence


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Event Free Rate (Secondary) [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]

    The secondary effectiveness endpoint is defined as the event-free at 12 months post-procedure.

    Secondary effectiveness events are defined as:

    • Acute procedural failure
    • More than one repeat procedure during the blanking period (90 days post index procedure)
    • Documented symptomatic atrial fibrillation, or new onset of atrial flutter or atrial tachycardia event (≥ 30 seconds in duration from an event monitor or Holter, or from a 10 second 12-lead EKG) between 91 days and 365 days post index procedure
    • Any of the following interventions for atrial fibrillation, or new onset of atrial flutter or atrial tachycardia between 91 days and 365 days post index procedure:
    • Repeat procedure
    • Cardioversion
    • Prescribed a higher dose of any AAD* documented at baseline
    • Prescribed a new AAD* not documented at baseline

      • AADs for endpoint will consist of all Class I/III and any Class II/IV medications taken for control of AF/AT/AFL recurrence
