BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment for arrhythmias, including frequent ventricular premature. As a complication of radiofrequency ablation, pseudoaneurysm can be treated conservatively or by ultrasound-guided thrombin injection.
CASE REPORT: We report a case that a possible allergic reaction to thrombin injected into pseudoaneurysm after radiofrequency ablation.
CONCLUSIONS: We hope that the report of successful management of the allergic reaction in this case may be of help to other doctors; we also emphasize the importance of checking the patient’s history of allergies to thrombin when considering treating pseudoaneurysm with thrombin injection.
