INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to assess the safety and feasibility of catheter-based cryothermal ablation lesions in the mid- and distal coronary sinus. METHODS AND RESULTS Cryothermal ablation lesions were delivered using a 7-French catheter at the mid- (n = 13) and distal (n = 12) coronary sinus in 14 swine under general anesthesia. Lesions were delivered for 2 or 4 minutes in a 1:2 randomized ratio such that seven 2-minute lesions and eighteen 4-minute lesions were delivered to a… CONTINUE READING
