Intraluminal Esophageal Temperature Monitoring Using the Circa S-Cathâ„¢ Temperature Probe to Guide Left Atrial Ablation in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation

Bhuta S et al1 have recently published an interesting study investigating the usefulness of esophageal temperature probe monitoring to guide left atrial ablations. Avoidance of esophageal injury during left atrial ablations remains an important area of study to prevent severe thermal injury that may manifest as esophageal-pericardial or atrio-oesophageal fistulas, both potentially life-threatening conditions.
