van Breukelen, Elena (author)
For the heart to pump blood throughout the body, electrical impulses that trigger the cellular contraction must be generated and spread through the myocardial tissue. These signals propagate faster along the longitudinal cardiac fiber direction than the transverse direction, conferring the heart with anisotropic conduction properties. Therefore,...

Estimating the transmembrane currents travelling through the epicardium and local activation times based on atrial epicardial electrograms can greatly help in the study of cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. This work focuses on the accurate estimation of the aforementioned signals and features. To do this, two least squares-based...

Estimating tissue conductivity parameters from electrograms (EGMs) could be an important tool for diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation (AF). One of these parameters is the fibre direction, often assumed to be known in conductivity estimation methods. In this paper, a novel method to estimate the fibre...

The most common serious heart rhythm disease is atrial fibrillation. It is not fatal on its own but does increase the risk of heart failures and strokes. There is little understanding about the mechanisms behind the disease, so more insight is desired. Using an array of electrodes, measurements are being performed of the electrical atrial...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common age-related cardiac arrhythmia. AF is characterized by rapid and irregular electrical activity of the heart leading to a higher risk of stroke and heart failure. During AF, the upper chambers of the heart, called atria, experience chaotic electrical wave propagation. However, despite the various mechanisms...

Background: Atrial electrograms recorded from the epicardium provide an important tool for studying the initiation, perpetuation, and treatment of AF. However, the properties of these electrograms depend largely on the properties of the electrode arrays that are used for recording these signals. Method: In this study, we use the electrode's...

Atrial electrograms are often used to gain understanding on the development of atrial fibrillation (AF). Using such electrograms, cardiologists can reconstruct how the depolarization wave-front propagates across the atrium. Knowing the exact moment at which the depolarization wavefront in the tissue reaches each electrode is an important aspect...

Background: Local activation time (LAT) annotation in unipolar electrograms is complicated by interference from nonlocal atrial activities of neighboring tissue. This happens due to the spatial blurring that is inherent to electrogram recordings. In this study, we aim to exploit multi-electrode electrogram recordings to amplify the local...

A common cardiac arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which is becoming more widespread worldwide. Currently there is some understanding about the mechanisms behind atrial fibrillation, however more insight into the conduction of the atrial tissue is desired. Therefore, invasive mapping studies have been performed where an array of electrodes is...
