Imperial College London researchers have shown how the chaotic electrical signals underlying irregular heart rhythms lead to the failure of standard treatments. By modelling how electrical signals on the inside and the outside of the heart move across the muscle, the researchers  have suggested why corrective surgery is not currently always beneficial.
