Cardiac ablation (catheter-based) for atrial fibrillation (AF)

The Arctic Front™ family of cryoablation catheters has been proven to be safe, effective, and efficient for AF ablation. With over 16 years of clinical experience and over one million patients treated worldwide,1 it is the first and only ablation catheter approved for initial treatment as an alternative to anti-arrhythmic medications.

The DiamondTemp™ ablation system with RealTemp™ is the only open-irrigated RF catheter with industrial diamonds to run in temperature-control mode for real-time feedback on lesion creation.

Learn about the role cardiac ablation can play in treating atrial fibrillation.
