The heart muscle is very compliant within a wide range of physiologic impulses. The adaptive energy of the myocardium depends, however, upon adequate oxygen supply and the functional state of the plasmalemma. These limitations have been well demonstrated in a number of experimental models with emphasis on the essential role of Ca2+ transmembrane movements for maintenance of heart functions and its viability. This postulate appeared quite important when we found that Ca2+ slow channel blockers… CONTINUE READING
