e generation of a less effective lesion.

"While many studies involve less complex cases, we were particularly interested in this one because participants must experience more severe atrial fibrillation," Horton said. "The study incorporates the technology that we already know is effective and advances it to an even higher level, helping us generate a consistently effective lesion in highly complicated cases."

The study is designed for patients who have persistent A Fib. Participants must also meet other specific criteria. To inquire about participation in the clinical trail, please call 512-544-2342.
