Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a progressive disease and, if left untreated, may worsen over time leading to increased risk of stroke and heart complications. Earlier treatment with cardiac catheter ablation may result in better outcomes, reduced symptoms, and improved quality of life.

The Medtronic cryoballoon is the first and only FDA-approved cardiac ablation device to treat AFib prior to trying antiarrhythmic drugs (AADs) to control your heart rhythm.
This safe, minimally invasive procedure has been used to treat nearly 1 million patients worldwide.
Talk to your doctor about whether Medtronic cryoablation is right for you prior to trying AADs.
Risks may include: stroke, unintended tissue damage, creation of other heart arrhythmias, and death.
An AFib diagnosis can be overwhelming and comes with a lot of questions, such as causes, symptoms, and treatment options. Learn more about AFib and what you can do to take back your life.Learn About AFib
