Abstract

Knowledge of relevant cardiac anatomy is crucial in understanding the pathophysiology and treatment of arrhythmias, and helps avoid potential complications in mapping and ablation. This article explores the anatomy, relevant to electrophysiologists, relating to atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia relating to the outflow tracts as well as endocardial structure, and also epicardial considerations for mapping and ablation.
