Summary– Among electrophysiologic procedures, catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) is challenging, requiring the isolation of all pulmonary veins (PVs). AF is associated with serious complications including PV stenosis. Presently described was a technically challenging case of PV isolation in a patient with left-sided pneumonectomy due to lung cancer.

Keywords: Ablation, atrial fibrillation, pneumonectomy, pulmonary vein isolation.
