Closed heart surgery without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is one of the trends of surgical treatment of tachyarrhythmias. Having rich experience of epicardial cryoablation, the authors introduced the original technique of intracardiac cryoablation. They have demonstrated the feasibility of creation of complete AV block in patients with supraventricular tachycardias by AV node-His-bundle cryoablation, elimination of AV junctional ("nodal") tachycardia by perinodal cryoablation… CONTINUE READING
