The transmural activation sequence in porcine and canine left ventricle is markedly different during long-duration ventricular fibrillation.


BACKGROUND Humans are more similar in transmural Purkinje and cardiac ion channel distributions to dogs than pigs. The Purkinje network in pigs is transmural but confined to the endocardium in dogs. Little is known about intramural activation during long-duration ventricular fibrillation (LDVF) given these differences. We tested the hypothesis that the… (More)
