Overview
Atrial fibrillation (AF) and Atrial flutter (AFlut) are the most common cardiac arrhythmias affecting approximately 1% of the population. Even though they are not immediately life threatening, they are associated with severe complications such as cerebral stroke. Radio fre-quency or cryoablation are the only curative therapies for these diseases. However, many pa-tients who underwent AF ablation develop AFlut subsequently. The aim of this work is to predict the changes in vulnerability to AFlut induced by certain ablation scar patterns in-silico.
