A 16-year-old female patient with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and supraventricular tachycardia underwent radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation of an accessory pathway in the left lateral area. During RF ablation she developed reversible ST segment elevation secondary to coronary artery spasm. Coronary angiography demonstrated the ablation catheter in close proximity to the circumflex coronary artery, with no evidence of coronary artery injury. Subsequently, conduction by way of the accessory pathway was successfully eliminated with cryoablation with no further coronary spasm or injury.
