In this article, we analyze myopathies with cores, for which an association to malignant hyperthermia (MH) has been suggested. We discuss the clinical features, the underlying genetic defects, subsequent effects on cellular calcium metabolism, and in vitro muscle responses to MH triggers. We describe in detail central core disease, multiminicore disease,(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral vasospasm is one of the most serious complications after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The cerebral artery diameter is regulated by complex physiological mechanisms. Among them the regulation of intracellular calcium homeostasis seems to play a crucial role. Recent data suggest that ryanodine receptors (RYRs) are involved in regulating(More)
Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a pharmacogenetic disorder with an autosomal dominant inheritance. During exposure to triggering agents as volatile anaesthetics, affected individuals may develop a potentially fatal hypermetabolic syndrome caused by excessive calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum in skeletal muscle. More than 60 MH associated(More)
