abstract

  • When additional ablation is performed to eliminate ADO-induced PV reconnection after PV isolation, dormant conduction is not a significant predictor of recurrent AF. Although PVs with dormant conduction at initial procedure may develop chronic reconnection, the majority of PVs that show conduction recovery at repeat ablation occur in nondormant PVs.
