Pulsed field ablation was able to safely isolate pulmonary veins with excellent durability in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, according to researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Researchers analyzed data from 81 patients with symptomatic paroxysmal AF who were resistant to class I to class IV antiarrhythmic medications. “Pulsed field ablation is something that’s a new energy modality that’s had a lot of interest in the electrophysiology field,” said Vivek Reddy, MD, director of cardiac arrhythmia services at The Mount Sinai Hospital. “I say it’s new, but it’s actually not new in a sense that it was the very first type of ablation.”
