BACKGROUND A variety of mapping criteria have been proposed to localize critical sites at which radiofrequency (RF) can predictably terminate reentrant ventricular tachycardia (VT) caused by coronary artery disease. The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of using a combination of 3 mapping criteria in predicting termination of VT by a single RF lesion. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifteen consecutive patients with coronary artery disease and recurrent sustained VT underwent an… CONTINUE READING
