Bottom Line: Radiofrequency catheter ablation of the slow pathway is considered to be the treatment of choice for patients with atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia.We report a 34-year-old female with mirror image dextrocardia due to unilateral pulmonary agenesis who underwent successful slow pathway ablation for typical atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia.Using contrast injection, cardiac anatomy was identified in a short time and successfully ablated.

ABSTRACT
Radiofrequency catheter ablation of the slow pathway is considered to be the treatment of choice for patients with atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia. We report a 34-year-old female with mirror image dextrocardia due to unilateral pulmonary agenesis who underwent successful slow pathway ablation for typical atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia. Using contrast injection, cardiac anatomy was identified in a short time and successfully ablated.

f6-imcrj-8-041: Fluoroscopic image with a modified anteroposterior projection showing an ablation catheter at the region of the slow pathway (Abl) and a quadripolar diagnostic catheter on the His bundle position (D).

Mentions: His bundle records were taken with an electroanatomi-cal approach. Then, slow pathway potentials were recorded (Figure 5B). Fluoroscopic views of the catheters during the ablation and mapping of the coronary sinus ostium are shown in Figures 6 and 7. During ablation, the radiofrequency energy was adjusted to obtain a catheter tip temperature between 50°C and 60°C. The current was applied for 60 seconds after junctional tachycardia was observed during ablation (Figure 8). ventriculoatrial block was not revealed during radiofrequency application.
