Abstract

Despite the increasing number of sophisticated, computerized tools available to the practicing electrophysiologist for facilitating catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia, the procedure is often quite challenging. Use of these tools needs to be kept in perspective, subservient to the judgment of the physician. This review explores a series of principles that should be applied in these procedures.
