Aims Scars causing ventricular tachycardia can extend deep to and beyond bipolar low-voltage areas (LVAs) and they may be a reason for endocardial ablation failure. Analysis of endocardial unipolar voltage maps has been used to detect scar trans-murality and epicardial scar. We hypothesized that endocardial unipolar LVA around the overlying bipolar LVA may predict endocardial ablation recurrence in patients with structural heart disease undergoing substrate modification.
