Following my 3rd DC Cardioversion on Monday, it's now all systems go to get this thing well and truly fixed. I've been in and out of AF so many times since last September it's starting to get scary. From September to November I was in and out of AF every 2-3 weeks. Since my first DC CV I've managed to stay in sinus for just over 6 weeks each time.
On talking to my Cardiologists secretary today, he is referring me to a very highly respected EP at Glenfield Hospital. I already know they'll be using 3D imaging, but I'm told they don't do cryoablation.
What's the difference between cryoablation and the more traditional method of ablating?
Does Cryoablation give a higher success rate? Are there more pros and cons for one method to the other?
Any comments most welcome. I've already made the decision to have an ablation and know I may require more than one procedure. It would just help to understand the difference between the two methods.
Thanks in advance,
