Abstract

We present a case of a 29-year-old woman who suffered from incessant atrial tachycardia (AT) leading to tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy. Based on classical mapping of the right and left atria the focus of AT was localised in the inter-atrial septum area. The RF applications from the right atrium stopped AT for some seconds. Applications from the left atrium terminated AT definitively. The patient has been free from symptoms of arrhythmia and heart failure for seven years.
