Cardiac arrhythmias and transcatheter ablation

Fei Lü, Scott Sakaguchi, David G Benditt

Abstract

The normal heartbeat is initiated by specialized cardiac cells (so-called pacemaker cells) located in the right atrium adjacent to its junction with the superior vena cava. These cells make up a specialized, albeit somewhat diffuse, region of the right atrium called the sinus node.
