The purpose of the present study was to determine (1) whether simvastatin (SV) modifies the rate-dependent conduction time and refractoriness of the atrioventricular (AV) node and (2) how it can change the protective mechanism of the AV node during atrial fibrillation (AF). Predefined stimulation protocols were applied to detect the electrophysiological(More)
Simvastatin (SV) leads to reduction of ventricular rhythm during atrial fibrillation on rabbit atrioventricular (AV) nodes. The aim of our study was (i) to determine the frequency-dependent effects of SV in a functional model, and (ii) to assess the effects of SV to suppress experimental AV nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). Selective stimulation(More)
Introduction: Developmental changes in atrioventricular nodal conduction time and refractoriness have been shown in several studies. Prevalence of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is clearly age-dependent. The purpose of this study was to determine developmental changes of basic and frequency-dependent electrophysiological properties of(More)
Introduction: Recent studies have shown acute cardioprotective effects of cyclosporine. The aim of the present study was to determine the protective role of cyclosporine on the model simulated the rotational nodal arrhythmia (AVNRT) by using extracellular field potential recordings of isolated atrioventricular-node (AV-node) of rabbit. Methods: This study(More)
