Modern cryotechnology makes it possible to cost effectively operate at such temperatures, and that means that compact, lightweight systems based on high-temperature superconductors are being considered more often.
They address tissue effects, cryotechnology, and clinical applications of procedures like ablation for atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia (AVNRT) and atrial flutter and fibrillation, septal pathways, balloon-based and endocardial cryoablation, epicardial cryoablation for patients undergoing mitral valve surgery, and cryoablation of ventricular tachycardias, as well as history and mechanisms.
