in patients with heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF), AF ablation improves left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), along with prognosis, in a variable percentage of patients. We aimed to investigate the predictors of LVEF recovery after AF ablation and to develop a prediction model for individualized assessment.
