Abstract

The aim of catheter endocardial mapping is to approach the earliest endocardial zon activated. This zone is defined by the earliest endocardial potential that can be recorded during VT. Indirect methods as potential morphology or pacemapping are the only ones available if VT is not triggerable or absent at the time of fulguration but have far less specificity.
