10 patients with documented ischaemic heart disease were undergone to atrial pacing (AP) before and after administration of nifedipine. The lactate utilization (%L), ischaemic ST, angor were tested in the same conditions before and after the drug. Six patients presented negative lactate utilization (-%L) during AP before the drug and four had decreased %L during recovery. -%L was removed by the drug, in those without -%L nifedipine is able to provocate the same paradoxically. Nevertheless angor… CONTINUE READING
