Pulmonary vein stenosis. PVS

I suffered from this complication PVS after going through a catheter ablation to correct my irregular heart beat. It is rare and a well known complication. Hope I can get some advice here.

I have heard balloon angioplasty and stenting are reasonably successful. Have you talked to a surgeon about treatment?


Ballon and stent have failed. Yes I have spoken to surgeons and all said can but none had the done this before. It’s very rare. Some other cardiac drs advice me not to do anything unless emergency.
