Abstract

A spatial analysis of extrasystolic excitation in the myocardium of the cat is made. The reverse waves have been recorded and their properties investigated. The conditions of formation of a reverberator (micro reentry) have been demonstrated. The findings point to a link between the repeat responses in the vulnerable period and circulation of excitation.
