Oxidative stress on pulmonary vein and left atrium arrhythmogenesis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Oxidative stress and pulmonary veins (PVs) play critical roles in the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether oxidative stress and antioxidant agents can change the electrophysiological characteristics of the left atrium (LA) and PVs. METHODS AND RESULTS Conventional microelectrodes… (More)
