BACKGROUND The novel second-generation cryoballoon (CB) facilitates pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) by improved surface cooling. The impact of this redesign on collateral damage is unknown. OBJECTIVE To investigate the incidence of esophageal lesions after PVI using the second-generation CB and the role of luminal esophageal temperature (LET) measurement as a predictor of lesion formation. METHODS Thirty-two consecutive patients underwent PVI using the second-generation 28 mm CB. Target… CONTINUE READING
