Project: Atrial fibrillation in horses: pathophysiology and use of anti-arrhythmic drugs
- project duration
- 01-JAN-03 – 10-JAN-07
- During 4 months, atrial fibrillation is experimentally maintained in healthy horses. Before, during and after the 4-month fibrillation period, echocariographical and electrophysiological parameters are determined and atrial biopsies are taken to determine the effect of atrial fibrillation on the healthy heart. The usefulness of new anti-arrhythmic drugs to treat atrial fibrillation in horses is investigated.
