Atrial Ablation Surgery with Resulting Atrial-esophageal Fistula
Atrial Ablation Surgery with Resulting Atrial-esophageal Fistula

This stock medical exhibit begins with an anterior view of a male with the heart and major blood vessels visible beneath the skin. A catheter is shown threaded up through the femoral vein and inferior vena cava and into the heart. An inset cross-sectional view of the heart shows the tip of the catheter in greater detail - it enters the right atrium and passes through the atrial septum into the left atrium. Next, a side cut-away view shows the close relationship of the atrium and the esophagus. An inset again shows the catheter tip in place and the ablation in progress. A final inset shows the subsequent condition, with a fistula forming between the atrium and the esophagus.
