Cryo Ablation

As many of you may know, I am having my fourth ablation next week. I have had three radiofrequency ablations the last being in 2010, and I remember reading this and wondering if I might get a chance with this technique. Well things move quickly and it is now quite a common procedure.

I just thought some of you might find this interesting

Hi Tim - Interesting report, thank you for providing the link. It gives us all a little more hope of being cured.

Good luck for next week .



Thank you very much

That is exactly what I was searching for



I hope all goes well for you. Good luck!


Yeh thanks for that Tim

So cryoablation has been around for about 4 years?


Good luck Tim! I've heard of this - I believe there's a surgeon that does it at Liverpool Chest and Heart (or is that Heart and Chest?). It does give us a bit of hope, though I suspect it would be hard to persuade a doctor in Wales to go for it...


I`m sure my EP said he was just using freeze and not freeze and burn, I will let you all know what it is I have and keep you posted on the results!


hi tim . how come they decided to do a cryo ablation on you mate ? are you private ?



Yes I am private through a work scheme, So I guess its not readily available on the NHS then?


I had an NHS cryoablation at the Trent Cardiac Centre, Nottingham 3 days ago. There are three consultants who able to perform it. My experience there was first class. Good luck!


Hi Sabina,

ist that your first ablation and how are you feeling?


Happy to hear about your experience

Can you tell us more about it ? How was it , how long , what was your case , medication. Which doctor , how is the services of the center

I'm interested in cryoablation since my doctor recommending it as my second ablation

Wish you all the best
