In old canine infarcts, homogeneous conduction slowing due to an elevated extracellular potassium concentration increased the intervals between deflections within FEs without affecting the number of deflections [9]. The observation that during AF, collision and slow conduction were associated with FEs indicates that these activation patterns were associated with dissociated activation in the atrial wall [24]. In this study of unipolar electrogram morphology in normal human atria, FEs were categorized as short double potentials, long double potentials, and complex FEs.

In 20% of specimens it descended close to the right venoatrial junction; in the remaining cases it had a leftward course close to the left venoatrial junction [52]. However, the esophagus coursed obliquely from left superior to right inferior in 36% of patients, and can move during the ablation procedure from one side to the other [113]. Being able to image the esophagus during the procedure can reduce the risk of damaging it. 20 Transverse histological sections (Masson’s trichrome stain) showing the proximity of the esophagus to the middle of the posterior wall of the left atrium (LA).
