NHLBI TOPMed - NHGRI CCDG: The Vanderbilt AF Ablation Registry
The Vanderbilt Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Registry (VAFAR) was founded in 2011. Patients with AF referred for AF ablation are prospectively enrolled. A detailed clinical history is recorded, along with imaging data (cardiac MRI or CT). Blood samples are obtained for DNA extraction at the time of ablation. Details of the ablation procedure are recorded. Patients are longitudinally followed to monitor for AF recurrence. VAFAR contributed 171 samples submitted to dbGaP for WGS: 115 were from male subjects, of which 113 were white/non-Hispanic and 2 were Hispanic; 56 were from females, of which all 56 were white/non-Hispanic.
