A group of researchers from MIPT and Ghent University (Belgium) has developed the first realistic model of the complex cardiac microstructure. The researchers hope that the model will elucidate the causes of fibrosis, which affects the onset of cardiac arrhythmias. Although the model currently simulates only one layer of cardiac cells, electrical wave propagation observed in the simulations was the same as in the experimental tissues. The paper was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
