The undetermined geometrical factors contributing to the transverse conduction block of the crista terminalis.


BACKGROUND The crista terminalis (CT) is known to be a functional barrier during typical atrial flutter (AFL). The relationship between the CT structural characteristics and its transverse conduction block, however, has not been understood well. METHODS This study consisted of AFL (group 1, N = 15) and non-AFL patients (group 2, N = 13). The CT structural… (More)
