We describe a case with three focal atrial tachycardias (ATs) and focal atrial fibrillation (AF) originating from the interatrial septum (IAS) near the atrioventricular node (AVN). Contrast-enhanced computed tomography demonstrated the association of fat deposition within the anterior IAS near the AVN with successful ablation sites of these ATs and AF. This is the first report that the intramural fat deposition in the IAS could be associated with the formation of AT and AF re-entry circuits originating near the AVN.
