During the staged hybrid procedure, the minimally invasive surgical ablation is performed first and catheter optimization is scheduled separately.

Although three of the five investigational sites were advocating to continue with the same-session procedure, all the investigators agreed that during the learning curve period, having the surgeon perform the minimally invasive procedure in their operating room and having the electrophysiologist perform their catheter optimization procedure in their EP lab may reproduce and lessen complications and alleviate the logistical challenges of integrating this procedure into certain new investigational sites.
