Contact-force sensing catheters are widely used in catheter ablation. The technique of high-power ablation has gained a growing attention in recent years. Our purpose of this meta-analysis is to compare the efficacy and safety between higher-power and conventional power ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) by contact-force sensing catheters. Methods: We identified studies through searching MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Web of Science, Scopus and the Cochrane Library from inception up until July 2020.
