B-011-04 ABLATION SCAR IN A SINGLE PULMONARY VEIN CAUSES PROARRHYTHMIC MECHANICAL DESTABILIZATION IN HEALTHY SHEEP ATRIA

      Atrial and pulmonary vein (PV) stretch is proarrhythmic, but the mechanical effect of PV ablation scar on atrial fibrillation (AF) arrhythmogenesis is unknown. We hypothesize that discontinuous PV ablation scars are proarrhythmic because they create heterogeneous stretch.
