Capsule Endoscopy for Post-Ablation Esophageal Lesion Assessment


CEPELA I Trial: Capsule Endoscopy for Post-Ablation Esophageal Lesion Assessment




Patients undergoing radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy for atrial fibrillation, can sometimes experience insult or injury to the esophagus, due to the proximity of the esophagus to the RFA treatment area. This study utilizes a disposable capsule endoscope (Pillcam ESO) to assess the condition of a patient`s esophagus before and after the RFA procedure, as the injury rate to the esophagus has not been established.
