Pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) is a known complication of pulmonary vein isolation in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. Patients with PVS can present with a great variety of symptoms. Clinicians should have a low threshold to evaluate for this potentially morbid and treatable condition. PVS can be treated by stenting affected pulmonary veins via… (More)
