Cellular and molecular mechanisms of atrial arrhythmogenesis in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Electrical, structural, and Ca2+ -handling remodeling contribute to the perpetuation/progression of atrial fibrillation (AF). Recent evidence has suggested a role for spontaneous sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ -release events in long-standing persistent AF, but the occurrence and mechanisms of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ -release events in… (More)
