AHA 22 – Dr Kate Wilcox, CardioNerds Academic Fellow (Medical College of Wisconsin, US) joins us in this collaboration between the @CardioNerds and Radcliffe Cardiology to interview Dr Jason Andrade (Vancouver General/Montreal Heart Institute, CA), investigator of the late-breaking PROGRESSIVE-AF trial (NCT05514860).
The aim of PROGRESSIVE-AF is to assess if the initial treatment choice, cryoballoon-based PVI or anti-arrhythmic drug therapy influences AF disease progression, as measured by continuous cardiac monitoring.
The trial showed that first-line ablation was associated with a significantly lower progression to persistent atrial fibrillation when compared to initial anti-arrhythmic drug therapy.
Recorded remotely from Montreal and Wisconsin.
