OBJECTIVE To study the architecture of the human sinus node to facilitate understanding of mapping and ablative procedures in its vicinity. METHODS The sinoatrial region was examined in 47 randomly selected adult human hearts by histological analysis and scanning electron microscopy. RESULTS The sinus node, crescent-like in shape, and 13.5 (2.5) mm long, was not insulated by a sheath of fibrous tissue. Its margins were irregular, with multiple radiations interdigitating with ordinary atrial… CONTINUE READING
