About the episode

EHRA 23 - Dr Marco Bergonti (Istituto Cardiocentro Ticino, CH) to discuss the key takeaways from the ANTWOORD II Trial. 

In this study, 605 heart failure patients undergoing atrial fibrillation ablation were enrolled to receive an ANTWERP Score, which aimed to predict LVEF recovery. 70% of patients were categorised as 'responders', patients identified as those who could benefit the most from AF ablation. 

Results suggest that responders to the study achieved 10 times less deaths and heart transplantations, 10 times less heart failure hospitalisations and 8 times more positive left ventricular remodeling. 


  1. Can you provide a brief overview of the ANTWOORD I trial and explain the research question that ANTWOORD II aims to address?
  2. Could you elaborate on the ANTWERP scoring system and how it is used in the study?
  3. Can you describe the study design, entry criteria, and patient population in detail?
  4. What were the main findings of the study and what conclusions can be drawn from them?
  5. What are the clinical implications of the study?
  6. What are some limitations of the study that should be considered?
  7. What are the next steps?

Recorded from EHRA 2023, Barcelona.
