An Electrophysiologist’s Cryoablation Experience Yields Better Results for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation

At the recent Boston AF Symposium, investigators of the STOP AF clinical trial, which investigated the effectiveness and safety of Medtronic’s Arctic Front Cardiac CryoAblation Catheter system, showed that electrophysiologists who are more experienced with the device had better success rates and no major complications compared to those who had performed just one or two […]

STOP AF Study Shows that Cryoablation Beats Antiarrhythmic Drugs for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation Treatment

Important new research from the STOP AF Study of people with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) shows a type of catheter ablation called cryoablation worked better than drugs to control arrhythmias. One year after treatment, 69.9% of people treated with cryoablation had no episodes of afib compared to 7.3% of those who were treated with anti-arrhythmic […]
