Catheter Ablation vs Anti-arrhythmic Drug Therapy for Atrial Fibrillation Trial


Catheter Ablation vs Anti-arrhythmic Drug Therapy for Atrial Fibrillation Trial




The (Catheter Ablation Versus Anti-arrhythmic Drug Therapy for Atrial Fibrillation Trial) CABANA Trial has the overall goal of establishing the appropriate roles for medical and ablative intervention for atrial fibrillation (AF). The CABANA Trial is designed to test the hypothesis that the treatment strategy of left atrial catheter ablation for the purpose of eliminating atrial fibrillation (AF) will be superior to current state-of-the-art therapy with either rate control or rhythm control drugs for reducing total mortality in patients with untreated or incompletely treated AF.
