Table 3 Procedural findings in patients with esophageal ulceration

From: Limiting esophageal temperature in radiofrequency ablation of left atrial tachyarrhythmias results in low incidence of thermal esophageal lesions

  Esophageal course Maximal esophageal temperature (°C) Power reduction (Watts) Ablation procedure
Patient 1 Mid posterior left atrium 41.1 30 PVI without additional linear ablation
Patient 2 Right pulmonary vein ostium 43.5 20 PVI without additional linear ablation
Patient 3 Right pulmonary vein ostium 42.0 30 PVI without additional linear ablation
  1. PVI: Pulmonary Vein Isolation
