However, 2 weeks later, the ECG still showed third-degree AV block, which indicated that recovery of the cardiac conduction system was suboptimal.
Third, the asymmetric design might lead to mechanical imbalance, which in turn affects the septum and increases the risk of damage to the conduction system.

In each treatment two radiometers were installed above the plant, one of them positioned with the sensor facing upwards, measuring the incident solar radiation (global solar radiation, Sr) and another installed with the sensor facing downwards, measuring the reflected radiation (Rr ) by the crop in the central portion of each conduction system (Figure 1).
It may be located in the main bundle or the distal conduction system, but even longitudinal dissociation with asynchronous conduction in the bundle of His may give rise to abnormal patterns of activation within the bundle of His since specific fibers appear to be predestined to activate certain parts of the right and left ventricles.
These additional experiments are important because BPA may motivate conduction abnormalities in individuals with preexisting heart conditions, such as AV conduction dysfunction, disease of the cardiac electrical conduction system, or fibrosis of the atria and/or ventricles.
