Purpose of Study 

The EARLY-AF study is centered on an evaluation of the impact of the early invasive management of Atrial Fibrillation. The primary goal of the study is to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of an early invasive approach. Specifically, the investigators are aiming to evaluate if PVI performed with the Arctic Front cryoballoon is superior to AAD as first-line therapy in preventing atrial arrhythmia recurrences (arrhythmia related symptoms, hospitalisations, and health care utilization).
