To determine the most frequent complication associated with cryoballoon PVI. The main hypothesis is to explore the incidence of phrenic nerve palsy.

Hemi-diaphragmatic palsy is a common undesirable effect of interscalene block, with an incidence of up to 100%. Mechanism of palsy is thought to be related to spread of local anaesthetic a...
Study conducted to confirm phrenic nerve stimulation using the a transvenous Phrenic Nerve Stimulator in the left jugular vein.
Phrenic nerve stimulation is a neurostimulation technique that allows patients who are dependent on external mechanical ventilatory support to regain their breathing autonomy. This study a...
Interscalene block has been the traditional regional anesthesia for shoulder surgery and postoperative pain. However, the risk of phrenic nerve palsy and irreversible nerve injury have enc...
The study objectives are to demonstrate the ease and safety of bilateral cervically implanted phrenic nerve stimulators for Central Sleep Apnea in patients with Heart Failure. To demonstra...
The hypoglossal nerve gives motor innervation to the intrinsic and extrinsic muscles of the tongue. Pathology of this nerve affects the balanced action of the genioglossus muscle causing tongue deviat...
Tardy ulnar nerve palsy is a chronic clinical condition characterized by a delayed onset ulnar neuropathy after an injury to the elbow. Typically, tardy ulnar nerve palsy occurs as a consequence of no...
Sixth-nerve palsy often develops as a result of trauma, neoplasm, or vascular disease affecting the pons. Less commonly, this palsy can be caused by pathology of the internal carotid artery in the cav...
Recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) palsy is a critical postoperative complication in esophageal cancer surgery. However, intraoperative prediction of its occurrence and severity is difficult. In this pro...
The motor nerve of the diaphragm. The phrenic nerve fibers originate in the cervical spinal column (mostly C4) and travel through the cervical plexus to the diaphragm.
Childhood-onset of recurrent headaches with an oculomotor cranial nerve palsy. Typically, ABDUCENS NERVE; OCULOMOTOR NERVE; and TROCHLEAR NERVE are involved with DIPLOPIA and BLEPHAROPTOSIS.
Complete or severe weakness of the muscles of respiration. This condition may be associated with MOTOR NEURON DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; injury to the PHRENIC NERVE; and other disorders.
Recurrent clonic contraction of facial muscles, restricted to one side. It may occur as a manifestation of compressive lesions involving the seventh cranial nerve (FACIAL NERVE DISEASES), during recovery from BELL PALSY, or in association with other disorders. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1378)
A syndrome of congenital facial paralysis, frequently associated with abducens palsy and other congenital abnormalities including lingual palsy, clubfeet, brachial disorders, cognitive deficits, and pectoral muscle defects. Pathologic findings are variable and include brain stem nuclear aplasia, facial nerve aplasia, and facial muscle aplasia, consistent with a multifactorial etiology.
