The dynamics of cardiac ischemia was investigated using experimental studies and computer simulations. An experimental model consisting of an isolated and perfused canine heart with full control over blood flow rate to a targeted coronary artery was used in the experimental study and a realistically shaped computer model of a canine heart, incorporating anisotropic conductivity and realistic fiber orientation, was used in the simulation study. The phenomena investigated were: (1) the influence… CONTINUE READING
