The complexity of waveforms during atrial fibrillation may reflect critical activation patterns for the arrhythmia perpetuation. In this study, we introduce a novel concept of map, based on the analysis of the wave morphology, which gives a direct evidence in the human right atrium on the spatiotemporal distribution of fibrillatory wave complexity in paroxysmal (PAF) and chronic (CAF) atrial fibrillation.

Abstract

The complexity of waveforms during atrial fibrillation may reflect critical activation patterns for the arrhythmia perpetuation. In this study, we introduce a novel concept of map, based on the analysis of the wave morphology, which gives a direct evidence in the human right atrium on the spatiotemporal distribution of fibrillatory wave complexity in paroxysmal (PAF) and chronic (CAF) atrial fibrillation.
