Owing to technical perfection of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), antitachycardic pacing (ATP), and radiofrequency catheter ablation, today's treatment of cardiac arrhythmias has ...

Calpain activity correlated with L-type Ca2+ channel and Kv1.5 protein amounts (r=0.80, P<0.001 and r=0.72, P<0.001, respectively), degree of structural changes (r=0.90, P<0.001), shortening of ...

The key aspects of cardiac memory were that the magnitude and persistence of the postpacing T wave changes increased with the duration of abnormal ventricular activation (referred to as accumulation ...

Introduction Experimental and clinical studies have established that atrial fibrillation (AF) induces a shortening of atrial refractoriness (electrical remodeling) [1,2]. If the relative ...

Abstract Objective: In animal models of hypertrophy, electrical remodeling giving rise to QT prolongation occurs rapidly and is associated with the development of torsade de pointes (TdP) arrhythmias ...

Conclusions: In the CAVB dog ventricular hypertrophy is not a prerequisite for electrical remodeling or drug-induced torsade de pointes, and the AT1-receptor has no dominant role in the completion of ...
