Cardiac anatomy remains a cornerstone for successful and safe interventional treatment for cardiac arrhythmias. The importance of appreciating detailed anatomy and correlating the specifics real time with fluoroscopy and intracardiac echocardiography as well as the sensed electrograms have become even more relevant with complex arrhythmia management. In this chapter, the regional anatomy of the heart is discussed in general, and after reviewing the tenets for anatomic correlation, specific points of interest to the principal arrhythmias targeted today in the electrophysiology laboratory are discussed. Where pertinent, key anatomic points for the electrophysiologist are highlighted.
