AF ablation can be curative or reduce the symptoms of AF. However, success rates are suboptimal while procedure times can be long. Since AF ablation depends on excellent tip to tissue contact, ease of use and signal quality, a new ablation catheter (FlexAbilityTM Ablation Catheter, St Jude Medical, St Paul, MN) was designed for use during complex ablation. We report an initial case of its use during paroxysmal AF.
