AE Fistula during Cryoballoon Ablation for AF. To date, there is one case report publication of AE fistula during the employment of the first-generation cryoballoon (Gen-1). Recently the Arctic Front Advance system (second-generation cryoballoon) was introduced into the US and EU market. For the purpose of peer education, we report a case of AE fistula that occurred during the utilization of the second-generation cryoballoon (Gen-2). Additionally, we review current best practices that may reduce the risk of AE fistula during any AF ablation procedure. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
