BackgroundPulmonary vein (PV) isolation with cryoballoon is a recently developed technique for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) with acceptable mid-term results in terms of the success and safety. The purpose of our study is to identify the periprocedural complications, mid-term success rates and predictors of recurrence after AF ablation with cryoballoon.MethodA total of 236 patients (54 % male, mean age 54.6 ± 10.45 years and 79.6 % paroxysmal AF) with symptomatic AF underwent PV… CONTINUE READING
