Abstract

We report the first case with central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO), which is a rare but ophthalmic emergency complication, in periprocedural periods of atrial fibrillation ablation. In this case, sudden visual loss occurred after the procedure and visual loss was persisted. Operators should know the incidence and management of CRAO.
