Postablation Atrial Arrhythmias

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Atrial arrhythmias, including atrial tachycardia and atrial flutter, are not uncommon after prior ablation. Mechanisms for arrhythmogenesis may vary and include recurrent conduction through sites of ablation, leading to recurrence of prior ablated arrhythmias and creation of new substrate. Incidence of postablation atrial arrhythmias varies across studies and may relate to the approach to ablation, including extent of ablation performed, or to extent of substrate identified at the time of prior ablation and how that relates to the lesion set. In addition, postablation atrial arrhythmias may be more common in certain types of cardiomyopathy, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
