High-density mapping of electrically induced atrial fibrillation in humans.
BACKGROUND Mapping studies in animals have suggested that atrial fibrillation (AF) is based on multiple reentering wavelets. Little information is available about the patterns of activation during AFExpand

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the 1990's: a population-based study in the Maastricht area on incidence, characteristics and survival.
OBJECTIVES We sought to describe the incidence, characteristics and survival of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in the Maastricht area of The Netherlands. BACKGROUND Incidence andExpand

Sudden cardiac death
Considerable effort and large sums of money have been spent on constructing a risk profile for sudden death in the myocardial infarction survivor at the time of discharge from hospital. However,Expand

Characteristic electrocardiographic pattern indicating a critical stenosis high in left anterior descending coronary artery in patients admitted because of impending myocardial infarction.
In patients admitted to the hospital because of unstable angina, a subgroup can be recognized that is at high risk for the development of an extensive anterior wall myocardial infarction. TheseExpand

Risk stratification for sudden cardiac death: current status and challenges for the future†
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) remains a daunting problem. It is a major public health issue for several reasons: from its prevalence (20% of total mortality in the industrialized world) to theExpand

The value of the electrocardiogram in the differential diagnosis of a tachycardia with a widened QRS complex.
To determine the value of the electrocardiogram for differentiating aberrant conduction from ventricular ectopy, findings were retrospectively reviewed from patients with a widened QRS complex duringExpand

Progress in the understanding of cardiac early afterdepolarizations and torsades de pointes: time to revise current concepts.
Time for primary review 19 days. Afterdepolarizations are oscillations of the transmembrane potential that depend on the preceding action potential (AP) for their generation and can give rise toExpand

Configuration of unipolar atrial electrograms during electrically induced atrial fibrillation in humans.
BACKGROUND During atrial fibrillation (AF), the atrium is activated by multiple wavelets that continuously change in size and direction. The aim of this study was to correlate the temporal variationExpand
