The purpose of this EP Wire survey was to assess clinical practice in periprocedural management of atrial fibrillation ablation. This survey is based on an electronic questionnaire sent to the European Heart Rhythm Association Research Network members. Responses were received from 78 centres in 20 countries. The results of the survey have shown that periprocedural management is generally in accordance with guidelines and consensus recommendations on ablation for atrial fibrillation ablation, although there are some areas of variation. Differences between high- and low-volume centres are observed with respect to patient selection, antiarrhythmic drug management, and heparin bridging.
