Description

The DECAF trial was conducted at the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute (TCAI) in 2013 in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin. Four hundred consecutive AF patients undergoing catheter ablation were enrolled. All participants provided voluntary informed consents. Blood samples were collected before the ablation procedure and labeled with anonymous patient identifier. The researchers at UT Austin responsible for DNA extraction and genetic analysis were blinded about the clinical characteristics and identification of the study participants. AF cases included adults >18 years of age from both sex and all AF types.
