BACKGROUND We report on 4 patients (aged 57 to 77 years; 3 men) who developed drug-refractory, repetitive ventricular tachyarrhythmias after acute myocardial infarction (MI). All episodes of ventricular arrhythmias were triggered by monomorphic ventricular premature beats (VPBs) with a right bundle-branch block morphology (RBBB). METHODS AND RESULTS Left ventricular (LV) mapping was performed to attempt radiofrequency (RF) ablation of the triggering VPBs. Activation mapping of the clinical… CONTINUE READING
