Ultrastructure of the atrial, ventricular, and Purkinje cell, with special reference to the genesis of arrhythmias.

Abstract

SUMMARY An examination of the anatomy of the atrial, ventricular, and Purkinje cells reveals that the internal composition of all cardiac myofibers is qualitatively the same: all have a single nucleus, sarcomeric and mitochondrial units, and a well-developed sarcoplasmic reticulum. There are important differences, however, in the extent and distribution of… (More)
