Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and congestive heart failure (CHF) often co-exist. Recently, catheter ablation is increasingly being used to cure AF related to CHF. Clinical evidence supports the feasibility of pulmonary vein isolation as a treatment option in drug refractory AF patients with impaired systolic function. Results have shown an improvement in ejection fraction, quality of life, and functional capacity.
