Turkish authors boldly raised[1] this question in a recent editorial in the *International Journal of Cardiology*. They likened AF ablation to renal denervation, a procedure that promised to transform the treatment of hypertension. That is, until the SYMPLICITY HTN-3[2]trial showed that renal ablation was no better than a sham procedure. Before the properly controlled trial, nearly... mais »
