BACKGROUND Brugada syndrome is characterized by ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Fundamental questions remain on the best strategy for assessing the real disease-associated arrhythmic risk, especially in asymptomatic patients. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prognosis(More)
BACKGROUND Several mechanisms have been advanced to explain Mobitz type II atrioventricular block in the ischemically damaged His-Purkinje system. Only recently, however, has an animal model been developed to study this form of conduction defect in vivo and in vitro. METHODS AND RESULTS Conduction defects were induced in anesthetized dogs by ischemic(More)
The authors studied the effects of lidocaine in 18 consecutive dogs with myocardial infarction 1 to 4 days after two-stage left anterior descending coronary artery ligation. Electrophysiologic testing was performed in anesthetized dogs after infarction with single-, double-, or triple-programmed extrastimuli or rapid bursts (3 beats at 240 to 420 beats/min)(More)
We compared the electrophysiological effects and quantified the antiarrhythmic/proarrhythmic potential of the 3,7-diheterobicyclo[3.3.1]nonane-derivative, BRB-I-28 and lidocaine in 15 consecutive postinfarction dogs. Electrophysiologic studies were performed in anesthetized animals, 1-4 days (mean +/- SE = 2.47 +/- 0.36) after the two-stage ligation of the(More)
GLG-V-13, a novel 3,7-diheterabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane, was examined both in vivo and in vitro in order to characterize its electrophysiological, haemodynamic and inotropic properties. Left ventricular epicardial monophasic action potential (MAP), surface ECG and mean arterial blood pressure (MBP) were recorded in six pentobarbital-anaesthetized, artificially(More)
We report the case of a 67-year-old woman suffering from Ebstein's disease, who underwent three cardiac operations for bypass, tricuspid prosthesis and pacemaker implantation, and who needed an implantable cardioverter defibrillator for recurrent syncopes related to ventricular tachycardia. Because of the tricuspid prosthesis we chose to implant the(More)
AIMS Patients affected by Brugada syndrome (BrS) are at risk of sudden cardiac death specifically at rest, when vagal tone is high. The aim of our study was to assess whether a phenylephrine injection, which provokes a baroreflex stimulation, could induce modification of the ST segment elevation and ventricular arrhythmias. METHODS AND RESULTS Baroreflex(More)
His-bundle electrograms recorded from intracardiac electrode catheters have been a mainstay of basic and clinical electrophysiology. However, consistent His-bundle pacing has not been as readily achieved. In 13 dogs anesthetized with sodium pentobarbital (30 mg/kg), we recorded leads II and aVR as well as the His-bundle electrogram from the aortic root. A(More)
GLG-V-13, a novel 3,7-diheterabicyclo(3.3.1)nonane, was examined both in vivo and in vitro to characterize its electrophysiological, hemodynamic, and inotropic properties. In anesthetized guinea pigs, GLG-V-13 [0.5-500 micrograms/kg intravenously (i.v.), n = 6] lengthened the epicardial monophasic action potential (MAP) duration, the atrioventricular (AV)(More)
Symptoms such as ventricular arrhythmias in Brugada syndrome (BS) typically occur at rest, especially during sleep, suggesting that the autonomic nervous system (ANS) function may be relevant in the arrhythmogenesis of the disease. The aim of this work was to assess the ANS response captured by nonlinear heart rate variability (HRV) measures in 69 patients(More)
