AIMS The efficacy of transvenous Cryoablation (Cryo), for the treatment of atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia (AVNRT), when compared with radiofrequency (RF) ablation, requires further investigation. METHODS AND RESULTS We sought to compare the acute- and follow-up results of 71 cases each of Cryo and RF for AVNRT using a retrospective matched case-control study design and aimed at identifying patient and procedural factors that may predict success with each strategy. Primary failure… CONTINUE READING
