|On comparison of the data from the surveys, the AF ablation procedure was observed to be performed in older patients and as a first-line therapy in Japan. In addition, more intensive ablation with less fluoroscopy was an observed trend. The use of FXaI during and after the procedure increased considerably, while the use of warfarin and DTI decreased.
