Abstract : The purpose of our work is to personalize an atrial model of the propagation of the action potential, based on electrical catheter data with the help of the data assimilation approach introduced in [Collin & Al, Journal of Computational Physics 2015]. The originality of the approach is to indroduce a Luenberger observer of a surface atrial model of the propagation which can pursue - like in classical Kalman filtering approach - the actual activation front reconstructed from catheter data. Moreover, this approach may account for the breakthrough of new activation fronts at anytime with an additional topological gradient term. In the present work, we adapt this approach to the bilayer surface atrial model of th propagation of action potentials [Labarthe & Al, Europace 2014], and evaluated for the first time on a real patient's dataset. First, the model was geometrically fit to the patient's data. A fiber architecture was added to the geometry. Then an initial electrophysiological state was guessed, and the model was run with the Luenberger filter for some catheter data acquired during a CARTO procedure. All along the simulation, the filter corrects the action potential so as to track CARTO local activation times, while preserving a biophysical behavior. With this technique, we are able to reconstruct smooth activation maps over the whole atrial surfaces. This promising technique may also allow to reconstruct velocity fields and directions, phase map and possibly give information on repolarization. This work results from a collaborative project carried out during a training session at CEMRACS 2016 in Marseille, Luminy.
