Study of Amiodarone Given Before Lung Surgery to Prevent Atrial Fibrillation After Lung Resection
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
Atrial fibrillation is a very common complication of pulmonary resection. Patients who
develop atrial fibrillation require additional treatment and are more likely to stay in the
hospital for longer period of time increasing the costs associated with the operation. We
propose a randomized controlled trial to see if oral amiodarone given for one week before
surgery can prevent atrial fibrillation after pulmonary resection. We plan to evaluate the
incidence of atrial fibrillation in patients who received preoperative amiodarone and compare
them to the incidence of atrial fibrillation in patients who did not received preoperative
Ablation vs Drug Therapy for Atrial Fibrillation - Pilot Trial
Abbott Medical Devices
The CABANA pilot study is designed to test the hypothesis that the treatment strategy of
percutaneous left atrial catheter ablation for the purpose of the elimination of atrial
fibrillation (AF) is superior to current state-of-the-art therapy with either rate control or
anti-arrhythmic drugs for reducing AF recurrences at 1 year follow-up.
