Abstract

Partial atrial standstill is characterized by the failure of atrial activity either spontaneously or in response to electrical stimulation in restricted site of atria. In this case with bradycardia, atrial standstill was restricted to the lateral and posterior right atrium. The markedly prolonged intraatrial conduction delay was observed in the superior to septal region of the right atrium. The electroanatomical mapping was successfully utilized to estimate atrial activity and to find a suitable site for atrial lead placement. The electroanatomical mapping may become an innovated strategy to estimate atrial electrical status in partial atrial standstill.
