Abstract

Catheter ablation is associated with limited success rates in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), which is mostly maintained by rotors that are located outside of pulmonary veins (PV) region. None of the currently available commercial mapping systems can accurately predict the rotor location outside of PV in patients with persistent AF.
