AtriCure Launches CryoForm Cryoablation Probe

October 2, 2015

Atrial fibrillation devicemaker AtriCure has launched its CryoForm cryoablation probe, which aims to bring increased probe flexibility to adapt to a variety of surgical ablation procedures.

The device adds to the CryoIce portfolio of ablation products used in the cryosurgical treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

Its increased flexibility enables surgeons to easily manipulate and apply the device and conform to challenging anatomies.

The probe also features thermal capacity to remove heat and active defrost, allowing for the fast detachment while maintaining the tissue’s frozen state, the company says. — Michael Cipriano
