BACKGROUND The second-generation cryoballoon (CB2) has recently been introduced featuring improved surface cooling. Increased procedural efficacy of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) when compared to the first-generation balloon (CB1) has been reported. The aim of the study was to investigate the clinical outcome of cryoballoon PVI after 1 year using the CB2 as compared to the CB1. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 105 consecutive patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) were studied… CONTINUE READING
