概要 Introduction: Little is known about the appropriate waiting time to confirm the elimination of dormant pulmonary vein (PV) conduction after administration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Aim: To clarify the relationship between the waiting time and clinical outcome after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI).Methods: We retrospectively included 191 consecutive patients (age 58.1±10.6, male 82%, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation [AF] 79%) who underwent circumferential PVI for AF. We investigated the waiting time from the final radiofrequency application to the final ATP administration without dormant conduction. Results: The patients were divided into two groups according to waiting times of ≥5, ≥10, ≥15 and ≥20 minutes, and only those with a waiting time of ≥20 minutes had a significantly lower AF recurrent rate (log-rank p=0.03). In patients without dormant conduction, those with waiting times of ≥20 minutes had a significantly lower recurrence of AF (p=0.01), but not in those with dormant conduction (p=0.67). In the multivariate analysis, structural heart disease (HR 2.10, 95%CI;1.17-3.65, p=0.02), the left atrial volume index (HR 1.02, 95%CI;1.00-1.04, p=0.03), and waiting times of <20 minutes (HR 1.86, 95%CI;1.10-3.31, p=0.02) were independent predictors of AF recurrence after the first ablation procedure. Conclusions: A waiting time of ≥ 20 minutes from the final radiofrequency application to the final ATP administration without dormant conduction may be adequate to achieve a good clinical outcome after PVI.
