AB - Left atrial anatomy and myocardial architecture areknown to influence rotor initiation and maintenance.However, identifying their relative contribution clinicallyis challenging. The present study aims to investigate insilico the effect of left atrial geometry in isolation onrotor generation and evolution through thespatiotemporal tracking of phase singularities. Aftermeandering for a short period of time, rotors areattracted to specific areas of the chamber where there ishigh curvature, primarily near the base of the left atrialappendage and the junctions of the pulmonary veins. Thissuggests that the left atrial anatomy could play a key rolein the perpetuation of fibrillatory activity.
