INTRODUCTION: Left atrial pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is an accepted treatment option for patients with symptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF). This procedure can be complicated by stroke or silent cerebral embolism. Online measurement of microembolic signals (MESs) by transcranial Doppler (TCD) may be useful for characterizing thromboembolic burden during PVI. In this prospective multicenter trial, we investigated the burden, characteristics, and composition of MES during left atrial catheter ablation using a variety of catheter technologies...

PURPOSE: In the present study, we aimed to test the value of CAAP-AF score for prediction of atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence at follow-up in a group of our patients treated by balloon cryoablation. METHODS: A total of 283 symptomatic drug-refractory AF patients [261 (92%) with paroxysmal AF] who underwent pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) with second-generation cryoballoon between April 2012 and October 2016 were included. The CAAP-AF score was calculated for every patient...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is a cornerstone of catheter ablation in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF), and balloon-based ablation has been recently performed worldwide. Ablation using the second-generation cryoballoon (CB2) (Arctic Front Advance(TM), Medtronic, MN, USA) is useful for PVI; however, there is some debate concerning the optimal freezing time and number of cycles after PVI is achieved. METHODS: The AD-Balloon study was designed as a prospective, multicenter, randomized clinical trial to evaluate the optimal strategy (freezing cycles) of CB2 ablation (UMIN Clinical Trials Registry UMIN000020130)...

Aims: In this double centre, retrospective study, we aimed to analyse the 1-year efficacy and safety of cryoballoon ablation (CB-A) in patients older than 75 years compared with those younger than 75-years old. Methods and results: Fifty-three consecutive patients aged 75 years or older with drug-resistant paroxysmal AF (PAF) who underwent pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) by the means of second generation CB-A, were compared with 106 patients aged <75 years. The mean age in the study group (>75 years) was 78...

Aims: Procedure times and left atrial dwell times of cryoballoon (CB)-based ablation strategies for atrial fibrillation (AF) are shorter as compared to radiofrequency ablation, yet fluoroscopy times are longer and result in a higher radiation exposure. The objective of this study is to evaluate a modified fluoroscopy protocol aiming at reduction of radiation exposure in CB ablation. Methods: A total of 120 patients with symptomatic AF underwent pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) using the second generation CB and an ablation strategy considering the individual time-to-isolation...

PURPOSE: Pressure waveform analysis has the potential for facilitated assessment of pulmonary vein occlusion during cryoballoon ablation for atrial fibrillation. Data on clinical outcomes using this method are lacking. We sought to validate through clinical outcomes the use of pressure waveform analysis as the primary method of determining pulmonary vein occlusion during cryoballoon ablation. METHODS: A study was performed of 122 consecutive patients with atrial fibrillation (85% paroxysmal) undergoing cryoballoon ablation from May 2014 through July 2015 at a single institution using pressure waveform analysis as the primary method of assessing pulmonary vein occlusion...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) using the 2nd-generation cryoballoon (CB2) for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) has demonstrated encouraging acute and mid-term results. However, follow-up data on outcomes beyond 1 year are sparse. We investigated the 3-year outcome after PVI using the CB2.Methods and Results:100 patients with paroxysmal (PAF, 70/100 [70%] patients) or persistent AF (pAF, 30/100 [30%] patients) underwent CB2-based PVI in 2 experienced centers in Germany...

Aims: In this study, we sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of cryoballoon (CB) based empirical left atrial appendage (LAA) isolation as an adjunct to pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) compared to the PVI-only strategy in patients with persistent AF. Objectives: Clinical outcomes of catheter ablation were less beneficial for persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) than paroxysmal AF. Methods and results: A total of 100 consecutive patients with persistent AF underwent both PVI and additional LAA isolation using CB (Group II)...

Aims: The therapeutical management of atrial fibrillation (AF) in the setting of Brugada syndrome (BS) might be challenging as many antiarrhythmic drugs (AADs) with sodium channel blocking properties might lead to to the development of ventricular arrhythmias. This study sought to evaluate the clinical outcome in a consecutive series of patients with BS having undergone pulmonary vein (PV) isolation by means of radiofrequency (RF) or cryoballoon (CB) ablation and the efficacy of catheter ablation for preventing inappropriate interventions delivered by implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) on a 3-year follow up...

PURPOSE: Pulmonary vein isolation is now widely accepted for the treatment of symptomatic atrial fibrillation refractory to antiarrhythmic drugs. However, multiple procedures are often required to significantly reduce atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence. In the present study, we analyzed the acute results and the midterm clinical outcome of a second-generation cryoballoon ablation (CB-A) performed during repeat procedures for recurrence of AF after an initial procedure performed with conventional radiofrequency (RF)...

BACKGROUND: Cryoballoon ablation of pulmonary vein (PV) ostia often induces a vagal response.This prospective study was designed to assess the effectiveness of prophylactic intravenous administration of atropine on hemodynamic impairment induced by cryoballoon ablation in patients with atrial fibrillation.

BACKGROUND: The second-generation cryoballoon (cryoballoon Advance; CB-A) offers excellent outcomes on the mid-term follow-up. To the best of our knowledge, little is known regarding the long-term outcome after CB-A ablation for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the freedom from recurrence of AF during a 3-year follow-up period, among consecutive patients having undergone pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) with the CB-A for paroxysmal AF (PAF)...

REVIEW
Louisa O'Neill, James Harrison, Mark O'Neill, Steven E Williams
Significant technological advances for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) have occurred over the last decade, with a consequent increase in numbers of patients referred for AF ablation worldwide. Despite this, long-term success rates, particularly in those with persistent AF, remain modest. The patient population presenting for AF ablation are heterogeneous with regard to age, type of AF and presence of associated cardiovascular disease. Improved understanding of factors predicting response to AF ablation may therefore help to improve patient selection for ablation procedures...
