Abstract: We conclude that with appropriate tools and settings the use of intraoperative radiofrequency catheter ablation is fast, safe and effective. Its indications can be extended to other types of atrial fibrillation patients.

“…Cardiac surgeons initially used the maze procedure and currently employ a variety of ablation techniques aiming to abolish AF [19][20][21][22]. The efficacy of this approach has been shown in several observational studies that were summarized in a recent meta-analysis [23], and has been confirmed in a prospective randomized controlled trial involving the use of RFA in the demanding group of patients with permanent AF [12].…”

“…Im Vergleich zur Standardtechnik sind keine multiplen Inzisionen im linken Atrium erforderlich, des Weiteren wird eine signifikante Verlängerung der Aortenklemmzeit vermieden. Die angewandte Methode ist eine von zahlreichen Modifikationen der intraoperativen Hochfrequenzstromablation, welche in jüngster Zeit entwickelt wurden [8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16]. Wir beobachteten einen relativ hohen Anteil an früh postoperativem Vorhofflimmern.…”
