Percutaneous epicardial mapping and ablation is an emerging method to treat ventricular tachycardias (VT), premature ventricular complexes (PVC), and accessory pathways. The use of a remote magnetic navigation system (MNS) could enhance precision and maintain safety. This multiple case history demonstrates the feasibility and safety of the MNS-guided epicardial approach in mapping and ablation of ischaemic VT, outflow tract PVCs, and a left-sided accessory pathway. All patients had previously undergone endocardial mapping for the same arrhythmia. MNS could present an advantage from more precise navigation for mapping and maintaining catheter stability during energy application.
