  1. 1. Chronic atrial fibrillation in man. Activation, organisation and characterisation

    Author : Magnus Holm; Kardiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ECG spectral analysis; Preferential conduction; Organisation; Conduction velocity; Refractoriness; Mechanisms; Activation pattern; Chronic; Fibrillation; Human; Atrium; Open-heart surgery; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF), with a prevalence progressively increasing with age, is one of the most common cardiac arrhythmias in man and associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Previous studies have shown that, in animals as well as in man, experimental atrial fibrillation is based on different types and dimensions of intra-atrial electrical re-entry. READ MORE
