Early Recurrences during the Blanking Period after Atrial Fibrillation Ablation

Early recurrences of atrial arrhythmias (ERAA) after ablation arecommon and predict late recurrences and ablation failure. However, becausea proportion of patients with ERAA will have no subsequent arrhythmias after the blanking period, consensus guidelines recommend against immediate repeat ablationfor ERAA episodes occurring during the first 3months post-ablation. In this review, we summarize the predictors, significance, and treatment of ERAA after AF ablation.
