Introduction: There is a paucity of data on the mechanisms of cough and hemoptysis that sometimes ensue from cryoballoon ablation of pulmonary veins (Cryo-PV). This study speciﬁcally examined the impact of ultra-cold (−60 °C, 3 minutes), prolonged (>−55 °C, 6 minutes), and conventional (>−55 °C, 3 minutes) Cryo-PV on lung/bronchial injury. Methods and Results: Four healthy adult swine underwent Cryo-PV. Each animal received Cryo-PV to the inferior common trunk and the right superior PV. In 2 animals, 1 PV was treated with 2 ultra- cold (Cryo-A ) and the other with 2 conventional (Cryo-A ) cryoapplications. In the other Ultra-cold Conventional 2 animals, 1 PV was ablated using 2 prolonged (Cryo-B ) and
