Studies in experimental and clinical myocardial infarction support the idea that sympathetic activity and myocardial noradrenaline release play a significant role in the development of myocardial ischemic damage. Betablockade has been shown to limit infarct size and lower the incidence of ventricular fibrillation in experimental models. Betablockade to patients (pts) with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has been shown to reduce ischemia reflected as reduction of ischemic chest pain, decrease… CONTINUE READING
