          Abstract

          A 50-year-old man presented with fever and chest pain. Later on the same day, he developed ischemic stroke and deteriorated into loss of consciousness. A trans-thoracic echocardiography showed air bubbles in the left atrium, resembling the floating bubbles in an aquarium. After further workups, atrio-esophageal fistula was diagnosed. To the best of our knowledge visualization of atrio-esophageal fistula by echocardiography has never been described previously.

          Circumferential pulmonary vein ablation for treatment of atrial fibrillation using an irrigated-tip catheter.

          In this study, a series of 52 consecutive patients with atrial fibrillation from 1 institution underwent circumferential pulmonary vein ablation using an irrigated-tip catheter. The technique was safe, and 81% of the patients maintained sinus rhythm at 6 months. However, 1/3 of them required additional antiarrhythmic drug therapy.
