Post ablation syndrome

Last revised by Mostafa Elfeky on 25 Sep 2019

Post-ablation syndrome occurs from 24 to 48 hours following ablation and lasts no longer than 10 days 1. It is believed to occur following cytokine release and tumor necrosis, causing patient fever and flu-like symptoms.

If symptoms persist following 10 days after the procedure, alternate diagnoses should be considered and acute infection should be ruled out.
