Epicardial mapping and radiofrequency catheter ablation of ischemic ventricular tachycardia using a three-dimensional nonfluoroscopic mapping system



Epicardial mapping and radiofrequency catheter ablation of ischemic ventricular tachycardia using a three-dimensional nonfluoroscopic mapping system



Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology 10(12): 1643-1648



Electroanatomic Mapping and Epicardial Ablation of VT. Endocardial radiofrequency catheter ablation of ischemic left ventricular tachycardia has been of variable success due to multiple factors. Two such factors include the location of the reentrant circuit in the deep myocardium or on the epicardial surface and the inherent limitations of fluoroscopy as a guide for target localization. We report a patient in whom successful epicardial mapping and radiofrequency catheter ablation of an ischemic left ventricular tachycardia was performed using pericardial access and the CARTO electroanatomic mapping system.
