Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) in atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation - optimising an effective and reproducible treatment

Focus on

Pulmonary vein isolation is the mainstay for atrial fibrillation ablation and, since first introduction in late 90’s, efficacy and safety have significantly increased. The present case based presentation will provide an overview on potential atrial fibrillation ablation complications focusing on methods to avoid or, at least, significantly reduce undesired events. The following learning objectives will emerge:

1) complications rate is low, but unfortunately still not insignificant

2) embolic complications, including silent cerebral events, may be significantly reduced by optimizing patient preparation and by performing the procedure under specific conditions

3) esophageus injuries, and other rare but potentially life threatening complications may be abridged and need consideration.
