Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation - PFA to the rescue?
I'm a 57 years old male with Paxoxymal AFIB in the last 4 years.
Other than AFIB, I'm pretty healthy. and active.
I'm on Flecanaid and things are pretty much under control (Using Pill in the Pocket of extra Flecanaid when needed – a few times a year).
It was recommended to me several times to have an ablation sooner rather than later, since it is likely that at some point the drugs won't work and the chances of success of the ablation will be lower if I postpone the procedure too much.
I've read quite a lot about the new and promising ablation technology called PFA (Pulse field Ablation) and was thinking about waiting with the ablation and giving PFA some time to mature.
My cardiologist heartily recommended that I go ahead with a regular Cryo ablation since it is not known if PFA turns out to be as good as everyone hopes and might take years before becoming the new Gold Candidate.
Any advise and prior experience will be highly appreciated.
