Abstract

We present a 43-year-old patient with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. In the process of catheter ablation, we found interruption of the inferior vena cava with azygos continuation with incomplete situs inversus. In this patient, we adopted the lower approach via the anomalous inferior vena cava and azygos continuation to achieve stability of radiofrequency catheter for right posteroseptal accessory pathway, and successfully abolished the preexcitation.
