Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) may cause vagal response during radiofrequency application or increase on heart rate after ablation. All those responses are related to inadvertent ablation effect on ganglionated plexi. In the present case, we aimed to explain why vagal response effects of PVI are not same in all cases.
