Ablation is an established treatment for ectopy originating from the left ventricle (LV). We report on a case of noninvasive 3-dimensional mapping locating the origin precisely in the epicardial LV summit area. However, after failed attempts from LV and epicardially, ablation via the left atrial appendage was finally successful. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)
