PMID:  20641108     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the case of a 58-year-old man who developed atrial fibrillation as a result of iatrogenic subocclusion of a diseased sinus node artery, originating from the left circumflex artery (LCx), occurring during LCx stenting, suggestive of an ischemic etiology of sinus node dysfunction.
