This was the first screening study at Mayo Clinic to assess the best energy source for ablation of ganglionated plexi, while minimizing myocardial damage. Following selection of pulsed field ablation (PFA) from the screening work, procedural feasibility was also demonstrated in both open-chest and sub-xiphoid models, using early prototype devices.
