Abstract

Incisional sustained tachycardias are frequent in patients who have undergone a surgical repair of interatrial defect. A 43-year-old woman with drug refractory, highly symptomatic, persistent atrial tachycardia in the last year, was referred to our unit for catheter ablation. The patient had undergone a cardiac operation for repairing interatrial secundum ostium type defect with a patch five years before. A previous radiofrequency ablation procedure had been performed for common atrial flutter. We describe a case of incisional atrial tachycardia ablation guided by the new EnSite NavX system equipped with a new electroanatomic mapping system.
