BACKGROUND Re-entry is the most common mechanism of sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with coronary artery disease and prior myocardial infarction (MI). OBJECTIVE This study sought to report the electrophysiological properties of a series of patients with prior MI who underwent radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for VT originating instead from a focal source. METHODS The electrophysiological properties of 46 patients with prior MI (male 89%, age 64.8 +/- 10.2 years… CONTINUE READING
