Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a patient with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome who presented with two distinct tachycardias that represented atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia utilizing left lateral accessory pathway (AP) and idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia (ILVT). Two tachycardias with a complete separate mechanism occurred spontaneously as well as following atrial or ventricular pacing. Successful ablation of the left AP and ILVT resulted in a cure of the double tachycardia.
