Acute myocardial infarction followed by radiofrequency therapy for
gastroesophageal reflux disease in a man: a case report
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a common comorbidity of
gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Since the distal esophagus and
heart share a common afferent vagal supply, the delivery of
radiofrequency in the distal esophagus can stimulate the coronary artery
and induce acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in a patient with CAD.
