A new cryoablation device for surgical therapy of atrial fibrillation
Christiansen S., Autschbach R.
Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery University of Aachen, Aachen, Germany
During the last years, atrial fibrillation was treated more and more by surgical ablation. Due to serious complications with the available devices, new tools were developed. We report on the first successful cryoablation procedure with a new device in a patient with a high-grade mitral valve insufficiency (III-IV) and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.
