Abstract

Optical mapping provides an efficient tool to study electrophysiological heterogeneity and its role in the mechanisms of arrythmogenesis, especially due to global ischemia. Global ischemia can increase electrical heterogeneity in the heart, thereby contributing to arrythmias. However, changes in the heterogeneities of the right (RV) and left ventricle (LV) during ischemia and their relationship to arrythmogenesis remain poorly understood. Here we hypothesized that global ischemia and reperfusion induce inter-ventricular (RV-LV) electrical heterogeneities during periodic pacing.
