abstract

  • Myocardial voltage extension into the pulmonary artery in humans is ubiquitous and can be demonstrated in vivo using 3-dimensional integrated intracardiac echocardiography to localize the PV. These extensions frequently serve as origins of presumed RVOT arrhythmias; intracardiac echocardiography localization of the PV allows reclassification of these as pulmonary arterial arrhythmias.
