Developmental changes in impulse conduction in the canine heart.


We studied the age-related changes that occur in conduction in Purkinje fiber bundles (PF) from adult and 8-wk-old dogs. As PF are stretched, conduction velocity increases to a maximum when bundle length is approximately 1.5 times control. Conduction velocity in adult PF was significantly faster than that in 8-wk PF at all bundle lengths, the maximum being… (More)
