A patient with peripartum cardiomyopathy developed a nearly incessant nonsustained VT. Guided by a noncontact mapping system, the tachycardia was mapped to the mid-septum of the right ventricle and ablated. Despite transient success, the tachycardia recurred and the patient subsequently died of multiorgan failure. Histopathological correlation of the ablation site revealed a nontransmural lesion that may have contributed to the failure of the ablation.
