A 58-year-old man with a long R-P' narrow QRS tachycardia underwent an electrophysiological study. The tachycardia was diagnosed as a permanent form of junctional reciprocating tachycardia (PJRT), and the earliest atrial activation site during tachycardia was coronary sinus (CS) ostium. Radiofrequency ablation at the site was initially not successful because the tip impedance and temperature were unstable. After changing of the ablation catheter to that with contact force sensor, the accessory pathway was immediately ablated and the PJRT was no longer induced. A retrograde CS angiogram revealed a fusiform aneurysm, which was located at the earliest activation site during the tachycardia.
