Abstract
Incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF) is high in patients with congenial heart disease. However, management of AF is challenging in these patients. Although radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is effective therapeutic option for AF, RFCA for AF is not common in patients who underwent Fontan operation. We present a 24-year-old woman with paroxysmal AF, who underwent lateral tunnel Fontan operation for functional single ventricle. Circumferential pulmonary vein isolation was successfully performed. However, significant pulmonary vein stenosis developed after RFCA. Pulmonary vein stenosis was successfully treated by transcatheter intervention.
