We present a transmurally heterogeneous phenomenological model of ventricular tissue that is designed to reproduce the most important features of action potential propagation of endocardial, midmyocardial, and epicardial tissue. Our model consists of only 3 variables and 20 parameters. Therefore, it is highly computational efficient and easy to fit to experimental data. We exploited our myocyte model to simulate action potential propagation in a 3D slab of cardiac tissue both in healthy conditions and in presence of Brugada syndrome. The results show that our model can accurately reproduce the transmural heterogeneity of the ventricular wall and the main characteristics of electrocardiographic pattern both in healthy and pathological conditions.
