Fossa ovalis radiofrequency perforation in a difficult case of conventional transseptal puncture for atrial fibrillation ablation.
J Interv Card Electrophysiol. 2008 Apr; 21(3):249-53.JI

Abstract

A 65-year-old man was referred for atrial fibrillation ablation to our center. Routine pre-procedure transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography examinations showed a normal interatrial septum and fossa ovalis anatomy. Access to left atrium was initially planned using a conventional transseptal needle puncture. During the procedure, several consecutive attempts in conjunction with intracardiac echocardiography support, failed to cross the septum. The procedure was then successfully carried out using a specifically designed radiofrequency transseptal catheter.
