BACKGROUND K(ATP) channels, activated by ischemia, participate in the arrhythmogenic response to acute coronary occlusion. The function of these channels in border zones of healing infarcts, where arrhythmias also arise, has not been investigated. Do these channels remain maximally activated during infarct healing, or do they downregulate after a period of(More)
BACKGROUND During initiation of tachycardias by programmed stimulation (PES), an inverse relationship between the coupling interval of the premature impulse (V1V2) and the interval between the premature impulse and the first impulse of tachycardia (V2T1) has been proposed to be a specific indicator of reentry. However, an inverse relationship has not always(More)
