Summary

Patients with atrial fibrillation that are scheduled for a catheter ablation procedure will be placed in one of two groups (to receive either a propofol infusion as their primary general anesthetic, or to receive inhaled sevoflurane as the primary general anesthetic). One of these two medications would be used by anesthesia during the procedure. The study will assess the outcomes of each medication.
