Ventricular arrhythmias and the His–Purkinje system

Abstract

Ventricular arrhythmias are a major cause of sudden death, which accounts for approximately half of cardiac mortality. The His–Purkinje system is composed of specialized cells responsible for the synchronous activation of the ventricles. However, experimental studies show that the Purkinje system can be arrhythmogenic during electrolyte imbalance, after… (More)
