  • Ventricular Tachycardia

Purpose:

Imaging is to be performed prior to procedure using positron emission tomography/ computed tomography (PET/CT), after a special dye is injected. The scans are going to be merged with other cardiac scans when doing the ablation procedure to correlate anatomy with physiology.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Clinical indication for ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation (at least one clinical episode of sustained VT) despite antiarrhythmic drug therapy, or if the patient does not wish to be on one - Ischemic or nonischemic cardiomyopathy - Sustained monomorphic VT Exclusion Criteria: - Right ventricular VT - Polymorphic VT or ventricular fibrillation (VF) being the sole detected clinical arrhythmia - Patient is unable to sign informed consent - Recent myocardial infarction less than 30 days - Recent ablation for ventricular tachycardia less than 30 days - Patient is unwilling or unable to cooperate with the study - Prosthetic mitral or aortic valve - General contraindications to VT ablation, e.g., major contraindication to anticoagulation therapy, known presence of left ventricular thrombus, reversible causes of VT or VF - General contraindications to PET imaging, e.g., pregnancy or lactation - General contraindication to magnetic resonance imaging or to the administration of gadolinium. - Contraindication to the placement of hemodynamic support devices, i.e. the presence of mechanical valves or lack of adequate vascular access
