Neuroleptics are a suspected cause of sudden death in psychiatric patients, especially in those with pre-existing cardiac lesions. As these lesions were previously shown to be associated with selenium (Se) deficiency, the aim of the present study was to evidence the possible protective effect of Se supplementation against cardiac lesions induced by the(More)
BACKGROUND Tachycardia often facilitates ischemic ventricular fibrillation (VF). OBJECTIVE This study assessed the impact of ivabradine (IVA), a selective inhibitor of the cardiac pacemaker If current, on ventricular fibrillation threshold (VFT) during acute myocardial ischemia. METHODS The experiments were conducted on a total of 54 domestic pigs.(More)
Further to our previous observation of post-mortem cardiac lesions after sudden death in several athletes with a history of anabolic steroid abuse, this study was intended to reproduce these lesions in rabbits administered testosterone oenanthate, a prototypic anabolic steroid abused by athletes, and to provide evidence for the protective effects of(More)
Organic and/or functional heart lesions sometimes resulting in sudden death have been described in psychiatric patients treated with neuroleptics. As selenium has been suggested previously to play a role in the development of such lesions, the present study was undertaken to determine whether a correlation could be found between heart lesions induced by(More)
INTRODUCTION The left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH)-ventricular arrhythmias relationship associated with arterial hypertension and aging remains controversial. We aimed to assess the age-dependency of ventricular arrhythmias in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and the corresponding ventricular structural and molecular remodeling. MATERIALS AND(More)
