Atrial Fibrillation Trigger Found That Could Lead to Effective Afib Treatments
Posted Oct 21 2009 6:18am
A newly published study reports on a type of cell found in the upper chamber (atrium) of the heart and in the pulmonary veins that triggers atrial fibrillation. Like the skin cells that make pigment, the afib-trigger cells produce an enzyme called DCT. Researchers hope this discovery will lead to new research and effective atrial fibrillation treatments.
