1/ Decided to take a 3-day break from #covidtwitter just as our paper was released 🤦🏻‍♂️. So now is my attempt to ‘clear the air’. We continue to share our data ablating at 50W, now with contact force. @TheRealWinkle noticed some trends with PWI and btw systems (Biosense and Abbott) 2/ But as you’ve all astutely said (@paulzei) this is non-randomized, both w/ patients & operators. 3 of 6 ablators routinely perform PWI (@hardwinmd, @PatrawalaRob, and myself), but each w/ differing methods re w/in-box lesions ie size of box, mapping entrance, pace&ablate, etc.
