Catheter ablation of premature ventricular contractions originating from kissing papillary muscles

Academic Article


  • Very thick left ventricular papillary muscles (PAMs) may kiss each other and premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) can originate from the sides of the PAMs facing each other. In such a setting, mapping of those PVCs is confusing and rendering catheter ablation challenging.
