Cryoablation is a medical procedure that uses extreme cold to destroy abnormal tissue, such as tumours or abnormal heart tissue. During cryoablation, a thin, flexible probe or catheter is inserted through a small incision or natural opening in the body and guided to the site of the abnormal tissue. The tip of the probe is then cooled to very low temperatures using a gas, such as argon or nitrogen, which causes the tissue to freeze.

What conditions can be treated with cryoablation
Cryoablation is commonly used to treat atrial fibrillation (AF), a common type of irregular heart rhythm. It can also be used to treat other arrhythmias, such as atrial flutter and certain types of ventricular arrhythmias.
How effective is cryoablation in treating heart rhythm disorders?
Cryoablation has shown to be effective in managing and eliminating certain heart rhythm disorders. Success rates vary depending on the specific condition being treated, the location of the abnormal electrical pathways, and individual patient factors. Your healthcare provider can provide more information on the expected success rates for your particular case.
