Alan Sugrue, Vaibhav R Vaidya, Christopher Livia, Deepak Padmanabhan, Anas Abudan, Ameesh Isath, Tyra Witt, Christopher V DeSimone, Paul Stalboerger, Suraj Kapa, Samuel J Asirvatham, Christopher J McLeod,

INTRODUCTION:The application of brief high voltage electrical pulses to tissue can lead to an irreversible or reversible electroporation effect in a cell-specific manner. In the management of ventricular arrhythmias, the ability to target different tissue types, specifically cardiac conduction tissue (His-Purkinje System) vs. cardiac myocardium would be advantageous. We hypothesize ... Read more >>
