In the fifth in the series of videos to mark the launch of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review, RadcliffeCardiology.com in association with the EHRA and doctors.net.uk, presents Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Round Table - 5: AF Ablation Part 1. In this video, the Round Table asks ‘Could ablation be the first line therapy for paroxysmal AF?’
The Round Table discusses treatment approaches available to the arrhythmologists to achieve the best patient outcomes in atrial fibrillation, with insightful opinions expressed on both the role of catheter ablation and various drug options.
