The word cryo-ablation is formed by the combination of two words 'cryo' meaning cold and 'ablation' meaning removal. Cryoablation is the most innovative and successful way to restore a normal heartbeat after interrupting abnormal electrical pathways that leads to stroke and other heart failures. The catheter is passed through a blood vessel through the patient's leg and is routed to the heart using advanced imaging technology. Nitrous oxide gas is infused into a cryo balloon which cools the tissue and produces intracardiac ablation lesions.
The advantage of this treatment is that the process is completed with the help of a balloon at a low temperature so that no other cells are damaged. The patient can return home the day after the procedure is completed. At Aster Hospital we have a team of highly experienced doctors who are experts in cryoablation procedures and provide the best care to patients.
