Ventricular tachycardi ablation

J P Fauchier, L Fauchier, D Babuty, D Casset-Senon, J L Benne, P Cosnay
Idiopathic monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (IVT) represents 10% of all cases of VT and is usually observed in young subjects. The origin of the VT may be right ventricular, especially in the infundibulum, giving rise to runs of VT with inter-critical ventricular extrasystoles of the same morphology, or to paroxysmal sustained exercise-induced VT; they usually show left bundle branch block with right axis deviation: the triggering mechanism is probably a parasystole incompletely protected from the sinus rhythm (for the runs of VT) whereas the mechanism of maintenance is probably that of triggered repetitive activity (for the runs and paroxysmal forms of VT)...
