A surgical treatment of ventricular tachycardia (VT) that induced a congenital left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) in a 12-year-old boy was performed. The VT disappeared after epicardial cryoablation and a reinforcement of LVA with a composite patch. Epicardial cryoablation, based on an intraoperative electrophysiologic study (EPS), is effective in treating VT resistant to antiarrhythmia drugs.
