Title:
Transvenous cryoablation versus radiofrequency ablation of the slow pathway for the treatment of atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia: a prospective randomized pilot study. 
Abstract:
AIMS: This is a prospective, randomized study comparing transvenous cryoablation with radiofrequency (RF) ablation of atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT). METHODS AND RESULTS: In this pilot trial, 200 patients with AVNRT were randomized to undergo cryoablation or RF ablation of the slow pathway. A 7 Fr 4-mm-tip cryocatheter (Cryocath) was used for cryomapping and cryoablation. Cryomapping was performed at the temperature of -30 degrees C to test the effect on the candidate abla...    »
