The Arctic Front™ Cardiac Cryoablation Catheter System includes the Arctic Front family of cryoballoons, which are used in conjunction with the CryoConsole™, the FlexCath Advance™ Steerable Sheath, and the Achieve™ and Achieve Advance™ Mapping Catheters.
Medtronic cryoablation devices have been used to treat nearly one million patients in over 80 countries worldwide.1
The Arctic Front family of cardiac cryoablation catheters uses cryo energy to isolate the pulmonary vein.
The Achieve and Achieve Advance Mapping Catheters are diagnostic catheters used to measure electrical signals before, during, and after an ablation procedure.
The FlexCath Advance Steerable Sheath helps deliver and position the Arctic Front Advance Cryoballoon in the left atrium.
The Freezor™ MAX Cardiac Cryoablation Catheter is a single-point catheter used to perform touch-up cryoablation to complete electrical isolation of the pulmonary veins as needed.
The CryoConsole houses the coolant, electrical, and mechanical components that run the catheters during a cryoablation procedure.
Designed with PVI in mind, the Arctic Front family of cryoballoons offer an anatomical approach for PVI, creating long, contiguous circumferential lesions surrounding the pulmonary vein.2 Providing physicians with a straightforward approach for PVI, the cryoballoon isolates each pulmonary vein with minimal energy applications, delivering consistent and predictable results.3
