Modified stepwise Ablation Guided by low dose Ibutilide in Chronic Atrial Fibrillation Trial (MAGIC-AF)

ID Number 09-0906

Principal Investigator(s)
Vivek Reddy

Department(s) or Division(s)
Cardiology

Description

This study will try to learn whether giving a low dose drug during an ablation procedure can allow doctors to identify those abnormal heart regions which are vital to causing atrial fibrillation thereby possibly performing the procedure in a shorter period of time with improved long term results compared to doing a similar procedure without administering this drug.  This will be helpful as shorter procedures may result in fewer complications while being just as (and possibly more) effective.
