Abstract

Linear phased catheter ablation in the right (RA) and left atria (LA) was performed in staged procedures in ten patients with medically refractory atrial fibrillation (AF). After a followup duration of 54 + 38 days, 6 patients remain in sinus rhythm with 4 experiencing recurrent LA flutter. Complications included pericarditis in 1 patient and pericardial tamponade in 1 patient.
