CryoBalloon: Cryoballoon atrial fibrillation ablation: in vivo evaluation of tissue effects and predictors of durable lesions

  • Project Title: Cryoballoon atrial fibrillation ablation: in vivo evaluation of tissue effects and predictors of durable lesions
  • Acronym: CryoBalloon
  • Partners: Dr. M. Anselmino (Division of Cardiology, Department of Medical Sciences, AOU Città della Salute e della Scienza) [PI], Dr. R. Faletti [Operative Unit Responsible] (UO2 - Radiology Unit, Department of Surgical Sciences, AOU Città della Salute e della Scienza), Michele Conti (UO3 - Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture, University of Pavia) [Unit]
  • UniPV funding: 12.500 Euros - Overall funding: 194.500 Euros (over 3 years)
  • Funding agency: Italian Ministry Of Health (MOH) – Ricerca finalizzata 2016 - (GR-2016-02362088)
  • Short description: Detailed characterization of the fibrosis induced by cryoablation, holds the potential to describe and measure in vivo effects of this energy source. A correlation between the extension of the fibrosis (at the left atrium - pulmonary vein antrum) and clinical efficacy may, indeed, result in improved technical application of cryoenergy. This enhancement could reduce AF recurrences and the need for repeated PVI ablations, leading to a significant reduction of the costs for AF treatment
