Recurrence rates of atrial fibrillation (AF) after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) are higher in patients with a left atrial low-voltage area (LVA) than those without. However, the efficacy of LVA guided ablation is still unknown. The purpose of this study-the Efficacy and Safety of Left Atrial Low-voltage Area Guided Ablation for Recurrence Prevention Compared to Pulmonary Vein Isolation Alone in Patients with Persistent Atrial Fibrillation trial (SUPPRESS-AF trial)-is to elucidate whether LVA guided ablation in addition to PVI is superior to PVI alone in patients with persistent AF.
