Abstract

Common trunk of the inferior pulmonary veins (CIPV) is the rarest anatomical variant of the pulmonary vein, posing a challenge to catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF). We show that cryoballoon ablation is safe and effective, and may be a first-line therapy option for AF in patients with CIPV.
