Aims It has been known that cryoballoon-based pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is an efficacious and a safe therapeutic option to eliminate triggers of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the effect of cryoablation on external modifiers of AF-like ganglionated plexi (GP) has never been investigated. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether vagal reactions probably due to GP modification during cryoablation, are associated with success rates during follow-up.
