Among the keys to successful ablation are the correct interpretation and thorough understanding of maneuvers commonly applied in the electrophysiology laboratory. Throughout this textbook, these maneuvers appear integrated in cases and in several of the other chapters. This chapter focuses on the maneuvers themselves rather than their particular applications in given cases. The rationale for each maneuver is described in some detail to allow the reader to anticipate and fully understand situations where the results from these maneuvers can be universally applied and to recognize exceptional circumstances. It should be apparent, after going through this chapter, that no single maneuver can be relied on to be diagnostic of a particular arrhythmia or solely used to guide ablation.
