The purpose of this study was to evaluate structural and optical properties of atrial tissue from common animal models and to compare it with human atria. We aimed to do this in a format that will be useful for development of better ablation tools and/or new means for visualizing atrial lesions. Human atrial tissue from clinically relevant age group was compared and contrasted with atrial tissue of large animal models commonly available for research purposes. These included pigs, sheep, dogs… CONTINUE READING
