We evaluated the effects of dietary fat on the pharmacodynamics of the antiarrhythmic drug propafenone in isolated, perfused rabbit hearts. METHODS AND RESULTS Three groups of weanling rabbits (n = 9 each group) were fed diets of(More)

During disease development, sinus bradycardia followed by high degree atrioventricular (AV) block finally culminating in ventricular asystole has been observed over time in calcineurin hearts. AV block is associated with the development of pleomorphic ventricular(More)
