Progression From Esophageal Thermal Asymptomatic Lesion to Perforation Complicating Atrial Fibrillation Ablation: A Single-Center Registry.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Up to 40% of patients demonstrate endoscopically detected asymptomatic esophageal lesions (EDEL) after atrial fibrillation ablation. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients undergoing first atrial fibrillation ablation and postinterventional esophageal endoscopy were included in the study. Occurrence of esophageal perforating complications during follow… (More)
