Atrial fibrillatory cycle length: computer simulation and potential clinical importance.


AIMS Atrial fibrillatory cycle length (AFCL) is generally accepted as a surrogate marker for local refractoriness. In this study, a computer model and clinical data on human subjects undergoing catheter ablation for paroxysmal and persistent AF were used to determine the clinical potential of AFCL. METHODS AND RESULTS Simulations were performed in a… (More)
