BACKGROUND The atria are assumed to be connected electrically to each other at the level of the Bachmann's bundle, coronary sinus (CS) musculature, and interatrial septum, and these connections may have an important role in the interatrial conduction and perpetuation of various types of atrial tachyarrhythmias. However, the number, location, and preferential connections of the interatrial conduction related to the site of activation have not been examined yet. METHODS The endocardium of both… CONTINUE READING

The endocardium of both atria and the CS were mapped during continuous pacing from the left superior and inferior pulmonary veins , right pulmonary veins , upper and lower right atrium , or right atrial septum at various paced cycle lengths in 14 canines .
