Arterial fibulation is the general term used to describe a variety of disorders in the electrical workings of the heart. The two most common forms of arterial fibulation are atrial fibulation and ventricular fibulation.

Arterial fibulation affects the way muscles in the heart beat, causing them to quiver or flutter rather instead, when the electrical rhythm of the heart malfunctions. As we age we become more susceptible to heart disorders characterized by fibulations, as our natural pacemakers which are built into our hearts begin to lose their rhythm. In a healthy heart there is an electrical charge that follows a path through the heart about 60 to 100 times per minute. As this electrical charge finds its way from one side of the heart to the other, the muscles it comes in contact with contract. When this works right the muscles contract in unison, causing the heart to beat. When the electrical signal is disrupted it can lead to arterial fibulations in the heart.
