Abstract: Catheter ablation of the slow pathway for atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is not always possible due to congenital or acquired obstruction of the inferior vena cava (IVC). Although a superior access has been proposed as an alternative approach, a poor manoeuvrability and a lower stability of the ablation catheter may be potential problems. We report a case of slow pathway ablation for AVNRT in a patient with an azygos continuation using a hypoplastic but uninterrupted IVC.
