Electrophysiological studies were performed in three patients with chronic recurrent ventricular tachycardia (VT) associated with coronary artery disease. In each case the ventricular origin of the tachycardia was confirmed and induction of tachycardia by programmed stimulation suggested a re-entry mechanism. Multiple types of ventricular tachycardia were observed which differed in cycle length, QRS morphology, timing of local epicardial and endocardial ventricular electrograms and the use of the specialized conduction system for propagation. There was evidence of one or more re-entry circuits arising in or near previously infarcted areas, with features of cycle length alternation, change in..
