A new cryoablation device for surgical therapy of atrial fibrillation

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery University of Aachen, Aachen, Germany

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.
