Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the AtriCure CryoICE system in performing the Cox-Maze III lesion set, in conjunction with LAA exclusion using the AtriClip device.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Atrial Fibrillation Persistent Atrial Fibrillation Longstanding Persistent Atrial Fibrillation Device: AtriCure CryoICE & AtriClip LAA Exclusion Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The AtriCure CryoICE Ablation System is being studied to ablate cardiac tissue during surgery for the treatment of Persistent and Long-standing Persistent atrial fibrillation in open concomitant cardiac surgery.

The effectiveness of the device will be demonstrated by establishing that the device effectively eliminates persistent and long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation in a clinically significant proportion of treated patients.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Effectiveness Endpoint: Freedom from AF/AFL/AT [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Freedom from AF/AFL/AT lasting >30 seconds in duration 12-months following the ablation procedure in the absence of Class I or III AADs.

  2. Safety Endpoint: composite acute major adverse event (MAE) rate [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    The composite acute major adverse event (MAE) rate, within 30-days post-procedure and deaths after 30-days if death is procedure related.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Composite post-procedure MAE rate (Safety). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Long-term safety based on MAE rate at 12-months post-procedure

  2. Pacemaker implantation (Safety). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Percentage of implantation of a permanent pacemaker either in the operative period (<30 days postoperative) or at any time during follow-up period.

  3. Overall SAE rate (Safety) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Long-term safety based on SAE rate at 12-months post-procedure

  4. Freedom from AF/AFL/AT in presence of previously failed Class I or III AADs (Effectiveness) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Freedom from AF/AFL/AT lasting >30 seconds in duration 12-months following the ablation procedure in presence of previously failed Class I or III AADs.

  5. Freedom from AF/AFL/AT regardless of Class I or III AADs (Effectiveness) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Freedom from AF/AFL/AT lasting >30 seconds in duration 12-months following the ablation procedure regardless of Class I or III AADs.

  6. AFEQT QoL Score (Effectiveness) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

    Based on composite score (0-100). A score of 0 corresponds to complete disability (or responding "extremely" limited, difficult or bothersome to all questions answered), while a score of 100 corresponds to no disability (or responding "not at all" limited, difficult or bothersome to all questions answered).

    AFEQT Evaluates Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) across three domains Symptoms - Four questions specifically targeted to assess AF related symptoms Daily Activities - Eight questions that evaluate daily function in AF patients Treatment Concerns - Six questions that assess AF treatment concerns in patients The overall composite score and domains will be summarized by presenting the means, medians, standard deviations, interquartile ranges, minimum, and maximum


  7. Acute procedural success (Effectiveness) [ Time Frame: Intra-operative period ]
    Absence of AF at end of procedure
