The frequency of pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) after ablation for atrial fibrillation has decreased, but it remains a highly morbid condition. Although treatment strategies including pulmonary vein dilation and stenting have been described, the long-term impacts of these interventions are unknown. We evaluated the presentation of severe PVS, and examined the risk for restenosis after intervention using either balloon angioplasty (BA) alone or BA with stenting.

Severe pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) is a well-recognized complication with a further reported incidence of 1.3%. The preferred therapy for symptomatic PVS is pulmonary vein (PV) angioplasty, but this treatment modality is followed by restenosis in 44-70%.

Pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) is a rare but significant complication of pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). Dilation and stent angioplasty have been described but not compared.
All percutaneous interventions for PVS complicating PVI between December 2000 and March 2007 were reviewed.

Although segmental or circumferential ablation is effective in eliminating pulmonary vein (PV)-mediated atrial fibrillation (AF), this procedure may be complicated by the occurrence of PV stenosis.
To establish the clinical presentation, diagnostic manifestations, and interventional management of PV stenosis, 23 patients with stenosis of 34 veins complicating ablation of AF were evaluated. Each patient became symptomatic 103+/-100 days after undergoing ablation.
