  • Atrial Fibrillation


The primary objective is to assess any differences in patient quality of life between Cryo Balloon ablation and Radiofrequency ablation in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. The study will also assess any differences in the amount and duration of pain medication required after the ablation.

Study summary:

Currently there are several different accepted techniques for performing ablation of atrial fibrillation. The two primary techniques currently in use in our center for atrial fibrillation are Cryo Balloon and Radiofrequency ablation. Based on personal observation, it is felt that patients undergoing Radiofrequency ablation have a higher incidence of chest discomfort and subsequently a greater requirement for pain medications post procedure as compared to those patients undergoing Cryo ablation.


Inclusion Criteria: - Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation who are advised either Cryoablation or Radiofrequency ablation for treatment. Exclusion Criteria: - Persistent atrial fibrillation - Pregnant - Taking pain medications for acute or chronic conditions at the time of the procedure. - Undergo a combination of Cryoablation and Radiofrequency ablation - Radiofrequency group who undergo ablation beyond pulmonary vein isolation
