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-up was related to documented EDEL (category 1: erythema/erosion; category 2: ulcer). In total, 1802 patients underwent first atrial… CONTINUE READING
