Background: Focussing on regional cerebral hypoperfusion during hemodynamically stable, but borderline hypotensive, sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) experimental studies show (1) a reduction of cerebral blood flow (CBF) during tachyarrhythmias in contrast to the concept of CBF autoregulation, (2) a mediation of hypoperfusion by neuronal and humoral mechanisms, and (3) an involvment of microcirculation due to an ischemic stress response of the cerebral tissue. The clinical relevance of… CONTINUE READING
