Tom De Potter (OLV Hospital, Aalst) discusses the aims of recent trials on ultra-low-temperature continuous ablation and summarises the results, which showed that the system is highly efficacious in an acute setting. Although long-term outcomes are yet to be determined, the results so far show promise in terms of meeting the ultimate goal of achieving electrical block, with 95% acute isolation rates in the first-in-human setting. In terms of safety, Dr De Potter explains, the findings from the studies were also excellent.
