Abstract

A 79-year-old man with situs inversus and dextrocardia underwent catheter ablation of symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI), using second-generation cryoballoon under Ensite NavX system guidance, was performed successfully in a reverse manner, which required short procedure and fluoroscopy times, as required in a PVI performed on a normal heart without any complications. Cryoballoon-based PVI under Ensite NavX guidance was feasible and safe to achieve a favorable outcome in this patient with abnormal anatomy.
