In this video interview, Dr. Sanjiv Narayan talked about the PRECISE trial, the late breaking clinical trial that he presented at Heart Rhythm 2013. This multicenter trial looked at whether FIRM ablation alone would work. Total ablation time in the trial averaged about 20 minutes. While they are still early in follow up, the data he presented showed a success rate of just over 80% at about nine months. He also shared FIRM data that was presented at HRS by other investigators.
Dr. Narayan is an electrophysiologist and Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego
