Abstract

We describe the case of a 67-year-old woman with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy who underwent successful radiofrequency catheter ablation for ventricular tachycardia (VT) originated from the isolated ventricular septal substrate. Pacemapping exhibited either left, identical to clinical VT, or right bundle branch block like wide QRS morphology. Time interval from the stimulus to QRS onset (St-QRS) was prolonged at the center of the substrate, while St-QRS at the border was shortened. Difference in the morphology of pacemapping was dependent on whether or not the pacing stimulus could propagate directly into the right ventricle due to the possible intramural conduction disturbance.
