The changes in the duration of atrial electrograms and the appearance of AF during atrial pacing were compared among five atrial pacing sites in dogs to clarify the arrhythmogenicity of atrial pacing at different atrial pacing sites. In seven mongrel dogs (15-20 kg), the right atrial surface was exposed by right thoracotomy. Atrial electrograms were recorded via bipolar electrodes with an interelectrode distance of 1.2 mm at four right atrial sites: (1) the high right atrium (HRA), (2) the mid… CONTINUE READING
