Evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of the CryoMedix cryoablation catheter system for the treatment of atrial flutter and fibrillation

Abstract

Catheter ablation of atrial flutter and fibrillation (AFL and AF) has typically been performed with radiofrequency energy. Cryoablation has recently been used for AF and AFL, but its success has been limited by the nadir temperature achievable using nitrous oxide as a refrigerant. In this study, a novel approach allowing for use of a liquid refrigerant… (More)
