Ventricular tachycardia with an outflow tract septal origin after repair of double outlet right ventricle

Academic Article


  • A 12-year-old boy born with double outlet right ventricle (RV) developed sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) 6 years after the corrective surgery and underwent electrophysiologic testing and catheter ablation. Electroanatomic mapping of the right and left ventricles during the VT revealed a centrifugal activation from the outflow tract septum. Though an excellent pace map was obtained in the RV, successful ablation was achieved on the left side. These findings suggested that the VT origin might have been located in the intramural region of the ventricular outflow tract septum with a preferential breakout site in the RV outflow tract.
