Abstract

Using a guide wire before insertion of a sheath is a common procedure with infrequent complications. We report an unusual case of a guide wire having been entrapped by the Chiari network prior to an intended radiofrequency ablation procedure, and which could be observed using intracardiac echocardiography. Using transthoracic echocardiography prior to ablation, this patient had been shown to have a relatively large Chiari network. We caution against using a long guide wire in patients with a large Chiari network.
