Idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia with a right bundle, left-axis deviation is thought to originate from posterior fascicles. Recently, there has been considerable interest in the anatomic and mechanistic basis of this arrhythmia. We report our experience with a 26-year-old man in whom new noncontact mapping technology was used to acquire detailed data from the left ventricle, identify the mid-diastolic potential and part of the ventricular tachycardia circuit, and perform successful ablation. This information helped define the physiologic aspects of this unique tachycardia.
