Successful Right Ventricular Tachycardia Ablation in a Patient with Left Ventricular Non-compaction Cardiomyopathy

Indian Pacing Electrophysiol J. 2013 Sep 1;13(5):181-4. doi: 10.1016/s0972-6292(16)30671-4. eCollection 2013.


We report a case of a 67-year old male with a recent diagnosis of left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC), initially presenting with symptomatic ventricular ectopy and runs of non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT). This ventricular arrhythmia originated in a structurally normal right ventricle (RV) and was successfully localized and ablated with the aid of the three-dimensional mapping and remote magnetic navigation.
