Purkinje Fibers

Summary Information: Purkinje Fibers

Purkinje Fibers: The Purkinje fibers are part of the electrical conduction system of the heart. The Purkinje fibers are located in the walls of the left ventricle and right ventricle of the heart. The Purkinje fibers conduct electrical impulses from the left bundle branch and the right bundle branch to the ventricles and stimulate them to contract and squeeze blood into the aorta and the pulmonary artery. Conditions that afflict the Purkinje fibers include bundle branch block, cardiac arrhythmias, ventricular fibrillation, tachydysrhythmias, bradydysrhythmias, heart blocks, myocardial infarction, and cardiac arrest.
