It is well known that there is considerable spatial inhomogeneity in the electrical properties of heart muscle, and that the many interventions that increase this initial degree of inhomogeneity all make it easier to induce certain cardiac arrhythmias. We consider here the specific example of myocardial ischemia, which greatly increases the electrical heterogeneity of ventricular tissue, and often triggers life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia and ventricular… CONTINUE READING
