BACKGROUND Patients with ventricular tachycardia (VT) after myocardial infarction often have multiple morphologies of inducible VT, which complicates mapping and is viewed by some as a relative contraindication to ablation. Attempting to identify and target a single "clinical" VT is often limited by inability to obtain 12-lead ECGs of VTs that are terminated emergently or by defibrillators. This study assesses the feasibility of ablation in patients selected without regard to the presence of… CONTINUE READING
