PMID:  9286547     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This report describes a patient who developed stenosis of coronary sinus and cardiac veins five years after application of electric shock currents to the posterior mitral annulus and posteroseptal region of the tricuspid annulus for ablation of a left posterior accessory pathway and a right posteroseptal accessory pathway. This is the first angiographic documentation of coronary sinus stenosis as a late complication of electric ablation of accessory pathway.
