Contrary to the fact that in patients with chronic myocardial scarring the ventricular tachycardia is monomorphic, in patients with acute ischemia the ventricular tachycardia is polymorphic and is reversible with coronary revascularization.We are(More)
The relation between electroencephalographic sleep parameters and plasma cholinesterase isozymes was examined in a group of 19 unmedicated schizophrenic patients. Rapid eye movement (REM) latency was found to be significantly inversely correlated with isozyme 3 (mainly acetylcholinesterase). The results are discussed in relation to cholinergic involvement(More)
