      Absence of rotational activity detected using 2-dimensional phase mapping in the corresponding 3-dimensional phase maps in human persistent atrial fibrillation.
      collected important geometry and basket electrical data in patients during atrial fibrillation (AF). They generated phase domain movies on a regularly rendered 2-dimensional (2D) grid of the electrodes and on projected 3D atrial surfaces and report that transient rotors appear on the 2D and projected 3D movies but at different times and locations, concluding that 2D movies describe incorrect patterns.
