Electrical and structural remodeling: role in the genesis and maintenance of atrial fibrillation.

Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) and congestive heart failure (CHF) are 2 frequently encountered conditions in clinical practice. Both lead to changes in atrial function and structure, an array of processes known as atrial remodeling. This review provides an overview of ionic, electrical, contractile, neurohumoral, and structural atrial changes responsible for… (More)
