Abstract

The basic electrophysiologic studies have proved the arrhythmogenic mechanisms of the pulmonary vein as an atrial fibrillation initiator; the mechanisms include enhanced automaticity, triggered activity, and microreentry from myocardial sleeves inside pulmonary veins. Immunohistology study has proved the conduction characteristics of pulmonary vein myocardium, and further study of ionic currents are important for understanding atrial fibrillation initiation from the pulmonary vein.
