Mechanisms for the Termination of Atrial Fibrillation by Localized Ablation: Computational and Clinical Studies.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Human atrial fibrillation (AF) can terminate after ablating localized regions, which supports the existence of localized rotors (spiral waves) or focal drivers. However, it is unclear why ablation near a spiral wave tip would terminate AF and not anchor reentry. We addressed this question by analyzing competing mechanisms for AF termination in… (More)
