Clinical Trial Summary

This is a multi-center, 2-arm, assessor and statistician blinded, pilot randomized controlled trial, to evaluate the effect of catgut embedding in acupoints of Neiguan and Zusanli in reducing early recurrence and improving long-term prognosis in patients with persistent AF after CA..


Clinical Trial Description

This multi-center, 2-arm, assessor and statistician blinded, pilot randomized controlled trial will be conducted at two centers in China: Shanghai Chest Hospital; The Second Affiliated Hospital of Shandong University of traditional Chinese Medicine. Patients with persistent atrial fibrillation after catheter ablation are 1:1 randomized into group A (amiodarone hydrochloride tablet + acupoint catgut embedding), group B (amiodarone hydrochloride tablet). ECG, inflammatory cytokines,AFEQT scale and other indicators are analyzed the effect of catgut embedding in acupoints of Neiguan and Zusanli in reducing early recurrence and improving long-term prognosis in patients with persistent AF after CA. ;
