Isolation of the pulmonary veins (PVI) has become mainstay in atrial fibrillation (AFib) therapy. Lesions in left atrial tissue lead to scar formation and this may affect left atrial function.

Cryoballoon vs. radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation: a study of outcome and safety based on the ESC-EHRA atrial fibrillation ablation long-term registry and the Swedish catheter ablation registry.
Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI), the standard for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation, is most commonly applied with radiofrequency (RF) energy, although cryoballoon technology (CRYO) has gained widespre...
combined left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) and cryo-energy pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) procedure has been proven safe and effective in managing stroke in patients with non-valvular atrial fibril...
Efficacy of cryoballoon ablation depends on balloon-tissue contact and ablation duration. Prolonged duration may increase extra-cardiac complications. The aim of this study is to determine the optimal...
The role of cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) is controversial, since long-term success can be poor. We performed left atrial voltage map...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is usually associated to conduction gaps in pulmonary veins (PVs). Our objective was to characterize gaps in patients with recu...
Cryoballoon Pulmonary Vein Isolation vs. Radiofrequency Pulmonary Vein Isolation With Additional Right Atrial Linear Ablation for Valvular Atrial Fibrillation: Prospective Randomized Trial (CRAVA Trial)
Cryoballoon ablation is proven to be effective in pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation. We previously reported that the rhythm outcome of...
Cryoballoon Pulmonary Vein Isolation vs. Radiofrequency Pulmonary Vein Isolation With Additional Right Atrial Linear Ablation for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation: Prospective Randomized Trial (CRAPAF Trial)
Cryoballoon ablation is proven to be effective in pulmonary vein isolation in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, and it can reduce the procedure time compared to conventional ra...
The study is a prospective randomized comparison of two methods of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation: Radiofrequency ablation which is the standard of care will be compared to Cryob...
Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) using cryoballoon ablation is a well-established procedure for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the use of cryoballoon ablation in recent ...
Consecutive patients with paroxysmal AFib scheduled to undergo pulmonary vein isolation either with radiofrequency (RF) or cryoballoon will be included. Left atrial appendage emptying flow...
A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.
A compression of ILIAC VEIN that results in a decreased flow in the vein and in the left LOWER EXTREMITY due to a vascular malformation. It may result in left leg EDEMA, pain, iliofemoral DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS and POSTTHROMBOTIC SYNDROME. Compression of the left common ILIAC VEIN by the right common ILIAC ARTERY against the underlying fifth LUMBAR VERTEBRA is the typical underlying malformation.
Narrowing of the PULMONARY VEIN.
