Substrate and Trigger Ablation for Reduction of Atrial Fibrillation | Clinical Trial - STAR AF II


Catheter ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation is less successful than for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. The goal of the trial was to evaluate three different ablation strategies among participants with persistent atrial fibrillation, in order to determine the optimal treatment strategy for these patients.

Contribution to the Literature: The STAR AF II trial showed that pulmonary vein isolation alone is superior to other catheter techniques in achieving freedom from atrial fib...
