Combined effects of nifekalant and lidocaine on the spiral-type re-entry in a perfused 2-dimensional layer of rabbit ventricular myocardium.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Spiral re-entry plays the principal role in the genesis of ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation (VT/VF). The specific I(Kr) blocker, nifekakant (NIF) has, often in combination with lidocaine (LID), recently been used in Japan to prevent recurrent VT/VF, but the combined effects of these drugs on spiral re-entry had never been… (More)
