The Cox Maze III procedure has been simplified with the availability of tissue ablation devices; however, complications related to their use are recognized. We report a case of 45-year-old woman who underwent mitral valve repair and concomitant Cryo-Maze procedure. She had reversible right coronary artery spasm develop after the procedure demonstrated by ST-segment elevation changes and coronary angiography, which was reversed with intracoronary nitroglycerin. The region of spasm suggested it as a consequence of proximity of the right coronary artery to the right atrial ablation lines.
