  1. Dec 24,  · Pulmonary vein (PV) stenosis (PVS) is a rare, but serious, complication associated with PV ostial isolation/ablation. We read with interest the article by Schoene et al., which reported an incidence of PVS of % (81 of 10, patients).Thirty-nine of patients (37%) with PVS were treated with a total of 84 catheter interventional procedures (transluminal balloon angioplasty and/or Author: Jian-Fang Ren, David J. Callans, Francis E. Marchlinski.
  2. Pulmonary Vein Stenosis. Pulmonary vein stenosis is a complication of severe BPD that can contribute to severe and progressive PH. The left-sided pulmonary veins (particularly the left upper vein) are most often affected, and severe PH can result after stenosis of only one vein. The mechanisms producing pulmonary vein stenosis are not yet known.
  3. Sep 01,  · Pulmonary vein stenosis is a very rare and serious condition in which there is a blockage in the blood vessels that bring oxygen-rich blood from the lungs back to the heart. This condition can be isolated to one vein, but often affects multiple veins. Stenosis occurs when there is an abnormal thickening and narrowing of the walls of the veins.
  4. alous pulmonary venous drainage (TAPVD) A unique characteristic of PVS is the potential for progressive and diffuse stenosis throughout the pulmonary venous system. Although commonly manifest as a local stenosis at the pulmonary vein–left atrial junction, the most malignant form of the disease is characterized by diffuse involvement.
  5. Methods: Patients who underwent pulmonary vein stenosis repair () with preoperative computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were reviewed. We measured pulmonary vein short and long cross-sectional diameters at the left atrial junction (downstream), vein .
  6. May 03,  · Case Study: Stenting for Pulmonary Vein Stenosis Following PV Isolation Cleveland Clinic recommends routine CT scanning of the pulmonary veins three to four months after pulmonary vein isolation. This case study of a year-old patient illustrates why.
  7. For patients with PRPVS, the initial approach is through the right atrium and across the atrial septum to allow visualization of the pulmonary vein ostia and clear definition of the location and extent of stenosis.
  8. Background— Pulmonary vein stenosis has recently been recognized as a complication of radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation. This study evaluates the presentation of affected patients and the role of transcatheter therapy for this patient population. Methods and Results— This study used a retrospective review of data from 19 patients (age, 51±13 years) with pulmonary vein.
