Abstract

This study summarizes our results in diagnosing and treating pulmonary vein stenosis complicating ablation for atrial fibrillation in 6 of 92 patients. Patients with significant pulmonary vein narrowing underwent either dilatation or dilatation plus stenting. Pulmonary vein intervention produced a favorable clinical course over the following 7 +/- 2 months despite significant restenosis in 2 patients.
