Episode 416: PREMIUM – CABANA – Ablation vs meds for symptomatic atrial fibrillation

In episode 416, James and Mike talk about the recently released CABANA study, the largest and longest trial done on catheter ablation for symptomatic atrial fibrillation. We find that in general the ablation group had fewer negative clinical outcomes and an improved quality of life. At the end we briefly discuss a paper that evaluated the level of evidence that supports the ~ 6000 recommendations in the cardiology guidelines from ACC/AHA/ESC.
