Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR TREATING CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA
Abstract:
Apparatus for monitoring activation in a heart comprises a probe (101), a plurality of electrodes (102) supported on the probe and extending over a detection area of the probe, the detection area being arranged to contact a detection region of the heart. Each of the electrodes (102) is arranged to detect electrical potential at a respective position in the heart during movement of a series of activation wave fronts across the detection region. A processor is arranged to analyse the detected electrical potentials to identify a propagation direction of at least one of the wave fronts, and to generate an output indicative of that direction.
