Abstract

A 58-year-old male was referred for catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation. He was incidentally diagnosed with cor triatriatum si nister by preoperative transesophageal echocardiography and cardiovascular computed tomography. The patient has since been free from atrial fibrillation for over 24 months following successful electrical pulmonary vein isolation. The rapidly soaring number of cases undergoing catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation and imaging investigation prior to the procedure may increase the incidental detection of asymptomatic congenital heart diseases.
