While thermal ablation to induce pulmonary vein isolation has proven to be successful in treating atrial fibrillation, the applied modalities create the possibilities for collateral damage to surrounding extracardiac structures. Bronchi are considered as one tissue susceptible to such collateral damage. Here, the relative impacts that focal cryoablation dosages have on bronchial tissues were investigated using an in vitro isolated tissue bath setup.
