Summary

This study is for people who have Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (PAF) and are undergoing an ablation. Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a type of irregular heartbeat. If you have it, your doctor will classify yours by the reason for it and on how long it lasts. When your heartbeat returns to normal within 7 days, on its own or with treatment, it's known as paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. The purpose of this study is to provide additional information about the safety and effectiveness of the VISITAG SURPOINT™ Module with External Processing Unit (EPU) when used with a THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH® SF (STSF) and THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH® (ST) catheter. THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH® family of catheters have been approved for the treatment of PAF for people that have unsuccessfully tried antiarrhythmic drug treatment (medication used to correct irregular heart rhythm), due to drug intolerance/side-effects or ineffectiveness of the drugs in preventing PAF. Participation in the study will last approximately 12 months after the ablation procedure. There will be a 7-day phone call and study visits at 1 month, 3-month, 6-month, and 12-months after the ablation procedure to monitor the participant's health and arrhythmia status

Summary

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of cardiac arrhythmia. An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. The purpose of the study is to see whether an investigational medical device called the DiamondTemp Ablation Catheter (also called the DiamondTemp Ablation System) can restore the heart to a normal heart rhythm. Every participant will receive the same treatment, radiofrequency (RF) ablation, for atrial fibrillation with the DiamondTemp Ablation System. The results of this study may be used to help the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determine if the device should be approved in the USA.
