Review on "High-Density Mapping of Atrial Fibrillation in Humans: Relationship Between High-Frequency Activation and Electrogram Fractionation"


Catheter ablation has rapidly gained acceptance as a mainstay of therapy for many symptomatic patients with atrial fibrillation since the original publication by the Bordeaux group[1]. Early on it became apparent that in most patients with paroxysmal AF, the arrhythmia was initiated by focal firing in the pulmonary veins. Ablation focused on elimination of such triggers and was largely limited to patients who would stay in sinus rhythm long enough to allow successful mapping within the pulmonary veins.
