The RAA is an uncommon site of origin for focal AT 2.4%. There is consistent P-wave morphology and endocardial activation associated with this type of AT. Using mapping targeted to anatomic structures achieved a high success rate for ablation. Irrigated-tip catheter may be helpful for patients who had a recurrence.
