BACKGROUND The initial experience with left atrial esophageal fistula (LAEF) secondary to atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation procedures revealed a near-universal mortality. A comprehensive description of the principles of LAEF repair in the modern era and its resulting impact on morbidity and mortality are lacking in the literature. OBJECTIVE To describe the presentation, surgical management, and outcomes of patients with LAEF. METHODS A retrospective cohort analysis of 29 patients was… CONTINUE READING
