OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to assess the spatial distribution of atrial ectopic foci potentially triggering recurrent atrial tachyarrhythmias after electrical cardioversion of long-standing atrial fibrillation (AF).
BACKGROUND: It remains unknown whether targeted ablation of atrial ectopic foci concentrated in the pulmonary veins is feasible in patients with long-standin
