The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) 2011: Key Trials

  1. DISCERN-AF: Asymptomatic atrial-fib recurrence clouds perception of ablation success
  2.  ALTITUDE: “Inappropriate” ICD shocks off the hook for mortality increase
  3.  PRELUDE: Inducibility in the EP lab a poor risk stratifier in Brugada syndrome
  4.  VT Ablation Study: High VT recurrence, mortality, and heart transplantation in VT ablation patients with very low EFs
  5.  CONFIRM: Ablating electrical rotors plus pulmonary vein isolation gets results in persistent AF
  6.  RAFT: Fidelis lead fracture rates higher in CRT-ICD devices
