Mechanisms underlying ventricular tachycardia and its transition to ventricular fibrillation in the structurally normal heart.


Reentrant ventricular tachycardia (VT) is the most common sustained arrhythmia leading to ventricular fibrillation (VF). However, despite more than a century of research, the mechanism(s) of the conversion from reentrant VT to VF have not been elucidated. Based on their different electrocardiographic appearance, reentrant VT and VF have traditionally been… (More)
