Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article presents selected lessons from experimental studies of atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter that pertain to the mechanisms and predisposing factors for flutter and fibrillation and approaches to treatment by antiarrhythmic drugs. Experimental studies also provide lessons for the effects of ablation and surgical lesions on prevention or facilitation of atrial fibrillation and flutter.
