Özet

Background: A subgroup of outflow tract (OT) ventricular tachycardias (VT) originate from the aortic sinuses or the main stem of the pulmonary artery. The anatomic substrate for these tachycardias is unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of ventricular myocardial extensions (VME) into the pulmonary artery (PA) and aorta (Ao) beyond the ventriculo-arterial junction (VAJ) and determine the anatomical and histological characteristics of these muscle extensions.
