[Comment] ADVICE on adenosine to improve atrial fibrillation ablation

Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia.1 Since it was first described in 1998, pulmonary vein isolation has evolved to become a routine procedure for patients with atrial fibrillation.2 Nevertheless, many patients need repeated ablation procedures because of recurrence of atrial fibrillation, which in most cases is associated with reconnection of previously isolated pulmonary veins.3 Thus, for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, one of the major challenges is to develop strategies to reduce pulmonary vein reconnection.
