    • Building a Parameterized 4D Cardiac Model with Respiratory Motion from 2D MR Time Series 

      Queralt Madrigal, Marc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-06)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Northeastern University
      Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a growing problem in modern societies with an enormous impact in both short term quality of life and long term survival. A recently developed promising approach to cure AF uses radiofrequency ...
    • Enabling atrial fibrillation detection using a weight scale 

      Ayers, Brian; Beshaw, Connor; Serrano Finetti, Roberto Ernesto; Casas Piedrafita, Óscar; Pallàs-Areny, Ramon; Couderc, Jean-Philippe (2016)
      Conference lecture

      Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a cardiac arrhythmia characterized by a highly irregular heart rate. It is the most prevalent arrhythmia in the general population in the United States and most developed countries, and ...
    • Influence of fibrosis in the genesis of atrial fibrillation: a simulation study in human atrial tissue 

      Xifra Esser, Carla (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-13)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      A dual analysis pretends to associate spontaneous calcium release events (SCRE) as rapid arrhythmia triggers and, atrial fibrosis, as a proper substrate for the perpetuation of atrial fibrillation. This computational study ...
    • Influence of the tubular network on the characteristics of calcium transients in cardiac myocytes 

      Marchena Angos, Miquel; Echebarría Domínguez, Blas (Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2020-04-17)
      Open Access
      Transverse and axial tubules (TATS) are an essential ingredient of the excitation-contraction machinery that allow the effective coupling of L-type Calcium Channels (LCC) and ryanodine receptors (RyR2). They form a regular ...
    • On bio activity related signals from contactless electrode measurements 

      Pallàs-Areny, Ramon; Casas Piedrafita, Óscar (2016-02-01)
      Open Access
      In a recent paper on a displacement current sensor for contactless detection of bio-activity related signals [1], it was stated that “A potential means for human presence detection…is via sensing…human biopotentials” ...
    • T-wave morphology restitution in chronic heart failure patient with atrial fibrillation 

      Palmieri, Flavio; Burattini, Laura; Mártinez, Juan Pablo; Ramírez, Julia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Chronic heart failure (CHF) represents one of the major public health problems that often end in sudden cardiac death (SCD). Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated withan increased risk of SCD but nowadays there is no ...
