Abstract

We report the case of a fistula formation between the left circumflex coronary artery draining into the left atrium as a complication of radiofrequency cardio-ablation and resection of the atrial appendages. This complication was diagnosed with the use of transesophageal echocardiography and was subsequently confirmed on coronary angiography.
