Recent laboratory studies have shown that the calcium antagonists (slow channel blockers) can protect the myocardium against the consequences of experimentally induced ischemia and reperfusion. With one recent exception, however, clinical trials relating to the effectiveness of these drugs in the management of patients with myocardial infarction have been disappointing. This paper explores this apparent discrepancy.
