The antidysrhythmic aminosteroid, ORG 6001, reduces the ST-segment elevation produced by coronary occlusion in the dog

Abstract

ST-segment elevation following temporary coronary artery occlusion was measured from nine epicardial leads in open-chest anaesthetized dogs. This was greatly reduced by the prior administration of the anti-dysrhythmic aminosteroid, ORG 6001. It is suggested that this effect is related either to a reduction in the extent and degree of myocardial ischaemia or to prevention of K+ egress from ischaemic cells.

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.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

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.
