This numerical study quantified the vulnerable period (VP) in heterogeneous models of the cardiac ventricular wall and its modulation by loss of cardiac sodium channel function (NaLOF). According to several articles, NaLOF prolongs the VP and therefore increases the risk of re-entrant arrhythmias, but the studies used uniform models, neglecting spatial… CONTINUE READING
