Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is a cornerstone ablation strategy in the management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Consensus guidelines and statements recommend PVI during the index catheter ablation procedure in patients with paroxysmal and persistent AF.
The objective of this analysis was to evaluate patients with persistent and long-standing persistent AF who were treated with the cryoballoon ablation catheter by PVI technique.
