A realistic 3D anatomical computer model of human atria has been designed, which simulates the cellular and tissue electrophysiology of atria. After having initiated sustained atrial flutter, the authors have tested some antiarrhythmic interventions, like pharmacological treatment and RF ablation. The virtual RF ablation simulations have a behavior similar to that reported in biological experiments. Therefore this anatomical model constitutes a new tool to study the impact of ablation for atrial arrhythmias
