Abstract

In ischemic cardiomyopathy, endocardial reentry has traditionally been the mechanistic paradigm for understanding ventricular tachycardia (VT). However, recognition is growing that epicardial myocardium is a critical component for VT substrate, even in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. In this report, we present a novel case of a three-dimensional VT reentry involving epicardial components and an endocardial exit.
