Figure 7 :A color-coded CARTO® map of the left ventricle during sinus rhythm is shown in a 71-year-old patient who had multiple ICD discharges for recurrent VT after a large anterior wall infarction. Wide areas of scar tissue are shown (gray color). Isolated myocardial potentials could be recorded between two scar tissue areas (blue points). Stimulation at these sites showed very different stimulus-to-QRS (S-QRS) intervals, indicating different areas within the reentry circuit: entry zone, central zone, or exit zone. An ablation concept could be created by connecting the scar areas with an ablation line to interrupt the reentry circuit of VT
