The lack of large randomized controlled trials comparing CCA to RFCA for treatment of AFl has impeded a valid determination of which ablation energy is superior in a head-to-head comparison. This issue is now being addressed by a few ongoing clinical studies. The general consensus among users of both CCA and RFCA for treatment of AFl appears to be recognition of a superior safety profile for CCA, an equivalent effectiveness, but a longer procedure time. Conclusions Since its availability in clinical practice in the 1990s, CCA has rapidly become a curative option for AFl.
Both studies, irrespective of certain methodological limitations, demonstrated a significantly higher efficacy of non-pharmacological approaches; however, a substantial incidence of AF episodes was observed during follow-up . Therefore, cavotricuspid isthmus ablation appears to be less successful in those with more frequent episodes of AF. Some evidence suggests that, in patients with AFL as the predominant clinical arrhythmia, cavotricuspid isthmus ablation reduces recurrences of AF over a long period of time.
