Cardiac fibrillation: from ion channels to rotors in the human heart.

Abstract

Recent new information on the dynamics and molecular mechanisms of electrical rotors and spiral waves has increased our understanding of both atrial fibrillation and ventricular fibrillation. In this brief review, we evaluate the available evidence for the separate roles played by individual sarcolemmal ion channels in atrial fibrillation and ventricular… (More)
