The aim of this research was to evaluate whether the procedural data, the incidence of complications, and the long-term freedom from atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrences are influenced by center experience in a paroxysmal AF (PAF) population performing a first-time pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) by cryoballoon ablation (CBA).
