UNLABELLED A possible role of anomalies in number and insertion of pulmonary veins (PV) in initiating atrial fibrillation (AF) has been suggested. It has been shown as well that changes in anatomy of PVs such as enlargement may have an effect on arrhythmogenesis. The aim of the study was to compare anatomy of the left atrium (LA) and PVs in patients with AF… CONTINUE READING
