Abstract

The anatomy of the infrahisian conduction tissue and endocavitary structures is complex but necessary to appreciate. The invasive electrophysiology must be thoroughly cognizant of the regional anatomy and relationships between these structures when performing common diagnostic maneuvers and delivering radiofrequency energy to treat ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. Similarly, the electrophysiology researcher needs to appreciate the large lacunae in our knowledge in terms of detailed anatomy of the conduction system in the human heart and the functional significance of these structures in arrhythmogenesis.
