ABSTRACT
We applied bifurcation analysis to the Luo-Rudy model of the guinea pig cardiac ventricular cell to investigate the behavior of repolarization in response to a simulated form of inherited arrhythmia, long QT syndrome. In this paper, we simulate pathological changes in cardiac repolarization through reductions in I[sub Kr]. Decreased expression of this current has been linked to an inherited form of long QT syndrome which results in a high mortality, presumably due to sudden cardiac death from ventricular fibrillation. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
