OBJECTIVES This study was designed to localize and characterize the atrial flutter reentrant circuit and the electrophysiologic effects of right atrial crush injury in a new canine model. BACKGROUND In previous studies sustained atrial flutter was induced in the canine heart by rapid atrial pacing after a linear crush injury was placed in the right atrial free wall. METHODS Eight dogs (group 1) with three electrode plaques on the right and left atria and Bachmann's bundle and seven dogs… CONTINUE READING
