At 22 years following heart transplantation, a patient presented with incessant atrial flutter. During electrophysiologic study, 2 simultaneous atrial arrhythmias were mapped, 1 from the donor and 1 from the recipient’s heart. High-density mapping allowed for rapid identification of electrically abnormal areas, which were successfully ablated, thus restoring sinus rhythm. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)
