BACKGROUND Left ventricular outflow tract tachycardia/premature depolarizations (VT/VPDs) arising near the anterior epicardial veins may be difficult to eliminate through the coronary venous system. OBJECTIVE To describe the characteristics of an alternative successful ablation strategy targeting the left sinus of Valsalva (LSV) and/or the adjacent left ventricular (LV) endocardium. METHODS Of 276 patients undergoing mapping/ablation for outflow tract VT/VPDs, 16 consecutive patients (8 men… CONTINUE READING
