    • Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is a common, often fatal arrhythmia frequently complicating acute myocardial infarction or heart failure. The pathophysiology of ventricular fibrillation has attracted much interest not only from the viewpoint of basic electrophysiology, but also that of clinical cardiology...

    • Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is a major cause of sudden cardiac death in which myocardial ischemia plays a leading role. During ischaemia activation of ATP-sensitive potassium channels (KATP) occurs, leading to potassium efflux from cardiomyocytes and shortening of the action potential favoring the genesis of ventricular fibrillation. In confirmation of this concept the sulfonylurea glibenclamide, which stimulates insulin release by inhibition of pancreatic KATP channels, has been shown to inhibit VF in different models of ischaemia by inhibition of myocardial KATP channels...

    • Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death. Yet, the mechanisms of VF remain elusive. Pixel-by-pixel spectral analysis of optical signals was carried out in video imaging experiments using a potentiometric dye in the Langendorff-perfused guinea pig heart. Dominant frequencies (peak with maximal power) were distributed throughout the ventricles in clearly demarcated domains. The fastest domain (25 to 32 Hz) was always on the anterior left ventricular (LV) wall and was shown to result from persistent rotor activity...

    • Ventricular fibrillation (BF) is a poorly understood yet potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia. The electrocardiogram (ECG) time series of VF is investigated by comparison of the linear and non-linear features of VF time series and surrogates in which internal correlations have been destroyed...
