The aim of this study was the development of a geometrically simple and highly computationally-efficient two dimensional (2D) biophysical model of whole heart electrical activity, incorporating spontaneous activation of the sinoatrial node (SAN), the specialized conduction system, and realistic surface ECG morphology computed on the torso. The… (More)
We present a computationally efficient three-dimensional bidomain model of torso-embedded whole heart electrical activity, with spontaneous initiation of activation in the sinoatrial node, incorporating a specialized conduction system with heterogeneous action potential morphologies throughout the heart. The simplified geometry incorporates the whole heart… (More)
This study describes an anatomically realistic 3D bidomain model of whole-heart electrical activity. The heart was embedded in a human torso, incorporating spontaneous activation of the sinoatrial node and including conduction through the specialized conduction pathways with heterogeneous action potential (AP) morphologies throughout the heart. The model… (More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study is to review existing methods developed for atrial fibrillation (AF) prediction and to analyse the possibility of finding parameters for reliable non-invasive clinical prediction of AF, occurring frequently after Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG).
