 Atrial fibrillation is a common cardiac arrhythmia with rapid and irregular atrial activity. Although radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation has became an established treatment for the management of symptomatic drug refractory patients in the past decade, several complications due to the procedure have been reported. The purpose of this review article is to describe the collateral damage from catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation.
