Conversion of Persistent Atrial Fibrillation After Radiofrequency Ablation by Ibutilide

Ablation of peristent AF remains challenging with questions unanswered about what the ideal next step after pulmonary venous isolation should be. Ibutilide is a highly effective class III agent for cardioversion of acute-onset atrial flutter and fibrillation, with limited clinical use due to risks of ventricular pro-arrhythmias. However, results from the on-going MAGIC-AF trial may re-invigorate its role in clinical electrophysiology as an invaluable adjunct to facilitate controlled substrate modification during ablation of persistent AF.
