Project description

Cardiac arrhythmias occur frequently in dogs. Current medical treatment is not very effective, leading to high morbidity and mortality. Using conventional as well as 3-dimensional electrophysiological techniques, this project aims to improve therapy of canine arrhythmias by means of ablation, in cooperation with human cardiologists, also with the perspective of the dog as animal model for cardiac arrhythmias in people.
