BACKGROUND Myocardial cells in the pulmonary veins (PVs) are thought to play a major role in the initiation and maintenance of atrial arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation. However, systematic single-cell microelectrode recordings from different regions in intact PV-atrial tissues are lacking. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the… CONTINUE READING
