Ground-BrEAking Electroporation-based inTervention for Atrial Fibrillation treatment (BEAT AF)

Project description

A more effective and safer ablation strategy for treating atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and is usually treated with catheter ablation, using either radio-frequency or cryoablation, scarring the tissue in the heart responsible for sending faulty electrical signals. This approach has a limited success rate with non-durable results and requires skills and expertise. The scope of the EU-funded BEAT AF project is to develop an alternative ablation strategy for a more long-lasting effect on AF symptoms. BEAT AF will employ pulsed electric field (PEF) energy which works by creating nanoscale pores in cell membranes. Researchers will undertake clinical trials to validate the effectiveness and superiority of PEF ablation compared to ablation using radiofrequency or cryothermal energy.
