Abstract

Aims The second-generation cryoballoon (Arctic Front Advance (TM)) (Arc-Adv-CB) has a redesigned injection system which distributes the refrigerant homogenously to the frontal balloon surface. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of the Arc-Adv-CB and its predecessor (Arctic Front (TM)) (Arc-CB) in patients who underwent pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) for atrial fibrillation (AF).
