Abstract

Background: The biatrial substrate properties in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) originating from the pulmonary veins (PVs) and superior vena cava (SVC) are not available. Objective: The purpose of this study is to characterize the differences of biatrial substrate properties in patients with different types of AF. Methods: A total of 36 patients with paroxysmal AF originating from the PV (PV-AF) and 9 patients with paroxysmal AF initiating from the SVC (SVC-AF) were included. Regional electrogram voltage, conduction velocity (CV), and spectral analysis to identify the AF nest were performed to characterize the biatrial, PVs, and SVC substrate. Results: In the left atrial (LA) body, the bipolar voltage, total activation time, CV, and dominant frequency (DF) were similar between the PV-AF and SVC-AF. However, in the PV regions, the electrogram voltage, CV, and DF were decreased in the PV-AF. The proportions of AF nest in the LA body (72.2% vs. 22.2%, P = .008) and PV regions (100% vs. 22.2%, P
