Cardiac CryoAblation System

The CryoConsole is the device that powers the Arctic Front® Cardiac CryoAblation Catheter and the Freezor® MAX Cardiac CryoAblation Catheter. The console houses the electrical and mechanical components and software needed to perform cryoablation procedures. It controls the delivery, recovery, and disposal of cryoablation refrigerant safely and efficiently. 
How the CyroConsole Works 
The CryoConsole safely manages the delivery, recovery, and disposal of N2O during cryoablation procedures. Its components and software operate the Arctic Front Advance Cryoballoon system and Freezor MAX catheters, and provide continuous monitoring ensuring system safety. 
Perform and Monitor, Cryoablation Procedures 
During a cardiac ablation procedure, pressurized liquid nitrous oxide (N2O) is delivered from a tank in the CryoConsole. The liquid refrigerant travels in an ultra-fine tube through the coaxial umbilical and the shaft of the cryoablation catheter to the tip of the catheter. 
The liquid refrigerant vaporizes as it is sprayed into the tip. As it vaporizes, it absorbs heat from the surrounding tissue, thereby cooling and freezing the target tissue. The warmed refrigerant is vacuumed back to the CryoConsole through a large lumen within the shaft of the catheter and coaxial umbilical. The CryoConsole discharges the vapor into the hospital scavenging system.

Cold plate is not turning on
What is displayed is cryo console is off please on. After attempting to turn on it states error cryoconsole then there is a number 15 in the top right corner of the display screen. Reply


  • Advanced Technology for Efficient Operation - stores and controls the delivery of the liquid refrigerant (N2O) through the coaxial umbilical to the catheter, recovers the refrigerant vapor from the catheter under constant vacuum, and disposes of the refrigerant through the hospital scavenging system 
  • Flexible and Ergonomic - features ergonomic design, a height-adjustable monitor, and touch-screen control for a straightforward procedure 
  • Intuitive Operation - displays numerical and graphical data to help physicians and staff assess the status of the system, catheter-tissue contact, ablation time, and catheter temperatures
