Acute ischemia of canine interventricular septum produces asymmetric suppression of conduction.


BACKGROUND Acute ischemia depresses tissue excitability more rapidly in the epicardium than in the endocardium of the canine left ventricular (LV) free wall. However, the effects of acute ischemia on conduction in the interventricular septum (IVS), which is composed of right ventricular (RV) and LV endocardium and midmyocardium without epicardium, are less… (More)
