Catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias originating from the left ventricular summit can be challenging, given the high risk of vascular injury and low success rates during radiofrequency ablation. In case of failed endocardial ablation attempt, ablation from adjacent structures such as the coronary cusps, coronary venous system, and the septal right ventricular outflow tract should be tried as effective alternative approaches, respectively. Epicardial approach is an effective alternative
