HeartRhythm Case Reports: Iatrogenic Type A Aortic Dissection During Idiopathic Ventricular Tachycardia Ablation” heartrhythmcasereports.com Iatrogenic ascending aorta dissection has been reported as a rare and potentially life-threatening complication of coronary angiography procedures ; however, there are no reports of this complication occurring during a cardiac ablation. Idiopathic ventricular tachycardia (VT) is an arrhythmia that occurs in structurally normal hearts and can often be definitively treated by catheter ablation. These cases occasionally require a retrograde aortic approach. We present an instance of a Type A aortic dissection resulting from ablation catheter manipulation during retrograde mapping of idiopathic VT.
