Fibulation is a term used to describe an abnormal rhythm in one or more chambers of the heart. Rather than beat in unison, the muscles of a heart suffering from fibulation tends to quiver. The immediate consequence of fibulation is an ineffective heartbeat which fails to pump blood as it should. This can cause serious problems such as stroke, cardiac arrest, as well as damage to the heart muscles themselves.
The most common type of fibulation occurring in the human heart is arterial fibulation. The two types of arterial fibulation are atrial fibulation and ventricular fibulation.
