Electrocardiomapping in Right Atrial Diverticulum and Accessory Pathway

Combination of structural (CT-scan) and functional (3D electrocardiomapping) imaging methods helped successfully accomplish ablation of a life-threatening manifest accessory pathway in association with a complex right atrial anomaly after previous unsuccessful attempts of endo-epicardial ablation guided by the invasive electroanatomic system in an adolescent female. Such a system has a potential to facilitate the ablation procedure and impact its outcome through accurate localization of the arrhythmogenic substrate.
