Abstract

In persistent atrial fibrillation the underlying mechanisms involved and how they vary in different patient populations remain poorly elucidated. As a result, curative techniques have a low success rate. It is anticipated that this study will provide detailed information regarding the mechanism of and underlying atrial substrate for persistent atrial fibrillation. This information will be expected to form a foundation on which development of curative and preventative approaches may be tailored.
