Transesophageal Echocardiographic Characteristics of Patients With Paroxysmal and Patients With Persistent AF
Paroxysmal AF NSR at PVI⁎(n = 207)
Paroxysmal AF AF at PVI⁎(n = 654)
Persistent/Permanent AF (n = 197)
AF = atrial fibrillation; other abbreviations as in Table 2.
↵⁎ Cardiac rhythm was assessed at the time of transesophageal echocardiogram in only cases that pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) was cancelled due to left atrial/left atrial appendage thrombus/sludge;
