Abstract

Postcardiac injury syndrome (PCIS) is commonly seen complication caused by radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) of persistent atrial fibrillation (persAF). We describe a rare case of PCIS with severe pulmonary hypertension (PAH) accompanied by severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) following RFCA for persAF.
