We presented a case of severe aortic regurgitation and moderate mitral regurgitation s/p aortic valve replacement and mitral valve repair. Deterioration of tachyarrhythmia attacks was noted. In EP study, left lateral accessory pathway with orthodromic atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia was identified. We successfully ablated the accessory pathway by trans-septal approach. Even though trans-septal approach currently is a daily routine of invasive interventional electrophysiologists, in this case, we want to emphasize and illustrate the distance between true mitral annulus and coronary sinus. Unrecognizing this concept could result in efficacy and safety of catheter-based therapy.
