New implications for the recurrence mechanism of an upper se
Verapamil-sensitive fascicular ventricular tachycardia (VT) is the most common type of idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia, and it is divided into three types. Upper septal ventricular tachycardia (US-VT) is likely in patients with prior episodes of left posterior fascicular (LPF)-VT ablation, however, little is known about the recurrence mechanism of US-VT.

A 53-year-old man had an US-VT after two catheter ablation sessions for a common idiopathic LPF-VT. The US-VT was successfully treated by ablating the proximal site of the LPF without making any further branch or fascicular block. This successful ablation point corresponded completely with the earliest pre-systolic potential (P2) site of the LPF-VT during the 1st session of catheter ablation.
