MEDAFI-Trial (Micro-embolization during ablation of atrial fibrillation) : comparison of pulmonary vein isolation using cryoballoon technique vs. radiofrequency energy

AIMS: Cerebral embolism is a possible serious complication during catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). The purpose of this prospective pilot study was to analyse the incidence and possible impact of cryo ablation on cerebral lesions and possible differences to radiofrequency (RF) ablation...
