Most of our recent trials are showing more that getting patients into a normal sinus rhythm is extremely beneficial in terms of longterm mortality. And it's also showing that ablation therapy works very well and should actually be tried in especially young patients with atrial fibrillation or patients who have what we call paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, which is patients who haven't had atrial fibrillation for long periods of time. So normal sinus rhythm is best - we know that, and ablation therapy is turning out to be a better way of treating atrial fibrillation. So the most recent trial for atrial fibrillation called the cabana trial did a head-to-head comparison of atrial fibrillation ablation compared to medical management for atrial fibrillation. And overall, the trial shows that atrial fibrillation ablation works very well for patients with AFib.
