BACKGROUND Imaging the coronary venous (CV) tree to delineate the coronary sinus and its tributaries can facilitate electrophysiological procedures, such as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and catheter ablation. Venography also allows visualization of the left atrial (LA) veins, which may be a potential conduit for ablative or pacing strategies given their proximity to foci that can trigger atrial fibrillation. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to provide a detailed description of… CONTINUE READING
