The disturbance of cardiac blood supply is the primary cause of VF occurrence after CAO. The greater the restriction of the coronary blood flow, i.e. the higher the level of CAO, is the higher the probability that VF occurs. However, there is no answer to the question of why after a similar level of CAO some animals (and patients) develop VF but others do not.
