Age-related increase in the incidence of ventricular arrhythmias in isolated hearts from spontaneously hypertensive rats

Abstract

In order to test the effect of arterial hypertension on cardiac electrical activity, isolated Langendorff perfused hearts from spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and normotensive (WKY) rats were studied. The incidence of spontaneous ventricular arrhythmias occurring during the control perfusion was 0% (n=28) in WKY, 31% in SHR (n=29, p<0.01), 7% (n=14) in 3… (More)
