Neuropsychological decline after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation


The article “Neuropsychological decline after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation” by Schwarz et al. is the first publication that focused on cognitive side effects of elective circumferential pulmonary vein isolation (PVI)1. Adverse neuropsychological changes after left atrial catheter ablation, as reported in this paper, were found in verbal memory and the result, conjoined with ischemic brain lesions , might represent cerebral side-effects of the ablation procedure.
