abstract

  • The mechanism of spontaneous PV rhythm after isolation is likely automaticity, given the close association of ADO effects on PV rhythm with its chronotropic and dromotropic effects. However, ADO can induce PV ectopy in electrically silent PVs in a manner not closely tied to its effects on heart rate and may be because of the activation of autonomic triggers.
