Abnormalities of the ECG were induced in rats by a diet deficient in copper. Abnormalities of the ST segment, bundle branch block, supraventricular beats, ventricular beats, and wandering pacemaker were found. Ventricular aneurysm, hemothorax, pleural effusion, cardiac rupture, and hemopericardium also occurred. Gross pathology and abnormal electrophysiology were not closely associated. Electrocardiograms of 12 rats were found to have abnormal ST segments. Rats with similar electrocardiographic… CONTINUE READING
