Tab Title Description
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
- Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.
During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.

About this study
VICTORY AF is an IDE, prospective global, multi-center, single arm, controlled, unblinded, investigational clinical study. The purpose of this clinical study is to evaluate the risk of procedure and/or device related strokes in subjects with persistent or long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing ablation with the Phased RF System.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- History of symptomatic persistent or long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation
- Failure of at least one anti-arrhythmic drug
- Structural heart disease
- Prior ablation in left atrium for AF
- Known sensitivities (or allergy) to heparin, warfarin, contrast media
- Contraindicated for MRI
- Invasive cardiovascular procedure performed or planned within 3 month period of ablation procedure
