An 18-year-old female patient with tricuspid atresia, discordant ventriculo-arterial connections, a total cavo-pulmonary connection, and a Damus-Kaye-Stansel suffered with atrial tachycardia. Use of a magnetically navigated catheter made it possible to create an electro-anatomical map of both atriums using a retrograde approach. It then proved possible to ablate successfully the tachycardia in the left atrium thanks to the unique capabilities of the magnetic navigation system.
