  • ablation
  • Ablation was guided by an electroanatomic mapping system (CARTO, Biosense Webster, Diamond Bar, Calif). After transseptal puncture, an angiogram of the LA was performed through a sheath (Agilis, St. Jude Medical, Saint Paul, Minn). Images confirmed the presence of an accessory LA appendage arising from the anterior wall of the LA ( Figure 2 A). Initially, premature atrial contractions were demonstrated arising from the left superior and inferior PVs, which were isolated. (ahajournals.org)
