Acute electrophysiologic, hemodynamic and left ventricular effects of nifedipine and beta-blocker interactions. Maintenance of global and regional left ventricular wall motion.


To assess potential cardiac effects of nifedipine and beta-blocker interactions, 10 men receiving chronic beta-blocker therapy for angina underwent hemodynamic, electrophysiologic and left ventricular (LV) functional analyses at the time of cardiac catheterization before and after buccal administration of 10 mg of nifedipine. Although this combination is… (More)
