    Definitely, in a variety of ways (eg. scarring/infiltration of the atrial wall, ventricular dysfunction and conduction disease).

    Having said that, I've performed standard catheter ablation for AF in a patient with very active cardiac sarcoidosis and achieved an excellent result (no AF at 6 month follow-up without drugs) so in his case the main cause of his AF was the pulmonary veins rather than the sarcoid.
