Microlesion formation in myocardial cells by high-intensity electric field stimulation.

Abstract

Arrhythmias, S-T segment changes, immediate refibrillation, and other signs of dysfunction are often observed after clinical and experimental transthoracic defibrillation. In vitro studies suggested that shock-induced dysfunction is induced by sarcolemmal dielectric breakdown accompanied by ionic exchanges through transient, shock-induced microlesions in… (More)
