The experiments investigated the applicability of two established criteria for arrhythmogenicity in Scn5a+/Delta and Scn5a+/- murine hearts modelling the congenital long QT syndrome type 3 (LQT3) and the Brugada syndrome (BrS). Monophasic action potentials (APs) recorded during extrasystolic stimulation procedures from Langendorff-perfused control hearts… (More)
This review presents a simple trigger-substrate model of arrhythmogenesis and its application to the generation of reentrant ventricular arrhythmias. We demonstrate its broad applicability to the understanding of arrhythmic phenomena in a wide range of both hereditary and acquired arrhythmic disorders.
The relationship between alternans and arrhythmogenicity was studied in genetically modified murine hearts modeling catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) during Langendorff perfusion, before and after treatment with catecholamines and a β-adrenergic antagonist. Heterozygous (RyR2(p/s)) and homozygous (RyR2(s/s)) RyR2-P2328S hearts,… (More)
