Ventricular fibrillation mechanisms and cardiac restitutions: An investigation by simulation study on whole-heart model

Abstract

BACKGROUND The action potential duration (APD) and the conduction velocity (CV) restitution have been reported to be important in the maintenance and conversion of ventricular fibrillation (VF), whose mechanisms remain poorly understood. Multiple-wavelet and/or mother-rotor have been regarded as the main VF mechanisms, and APD restitution (APDR) and CV… (More)
