In this article, typical characteristics of focal atrial tachycardias are described and a systematic approach regarding diagnostics and treatment options in the field of invasive cardiac electrophysiology (EP) is presented. Subjects of this article include the definition of focal atrial tachycardias, knowledge about localizing the origin of such, and guidance on how to approach an invasive EP study (e.g., administration of medication during the EP study to provoke tachycardias). Further, descriptions will be found on how to localize the origin of focal atrial tachycardias with the help of the 12-lead ECG and invasive three-dimensional mapping to successfully treat focal atrial tachycardias with catheter ablation.
