Serial Hybrid Atrial Fibrillation Ablation

Brief description of study

Treatment of (long-standing) persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) remains cumbersome and the surgical (epicardial) approach seems to be the most effective. Still, however a significant amount of failures exist which is mostly due to incompleteness of the surgical ablation lines. Checking, and if necessary additional ablation, of these lines afterwards endocardially by the cardiologist (the so-called serial hybrid approach) could overcome this problem.
