Pulmonary vein antrum isolation is an accepted alternative to antiarrhythmic therapy for restoring normal sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation. The procedure has a high initial success rate, but many patients subsequently experience recurrence of the arrhythmia. Cardiac magnetic resonance might offer a means of identifying patients who are more likely to experience successful long-term results from pulmonary vein antrum isolation.
