Proarrhythmia Induced by Propafenone: What is the Mechanism?

Indian Pacing and Electrophysiology Journal

PMID: 20552063

Abstract

Propafenone, a Class IC antiarrhythmic drug, is an orally active sodium channel-blocking agent. It is effective in supraventricular tachyarrhythmias and is particularly useful in converting atrial fibrillation to sinus rhythm. In therapeutic doses, it may cause non-cardiac and cardiac t...read more

Supraventricular Arrhythmias

Supraventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms, typically faster than normal rhythms, that originate in the upper part of the heart. Find the latest research on supraventricular arrhythmias here.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Selective Ion Transport in Channels & Pumps

Ion channels and pumps are central to a number of cell functions, including membrane excitability and synaptic transmission. With sophisticated imaging, these channels and pumps have been characterized as selective for the ions, sodium, potassium chloride and calcium. Here is the latest research on selection ion transport in channels and pumps.

Drug-Induced Diseases

Drug-induced diseases (DID) also called as iatrogenic diseases. Most of these DIDs are largely preventable, if strict vigilance and proper periodic clinical and diagnostic monitoring are undertaken

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
