BACKGROUND Increased cardiac sympathetic nerve activity is thought to contribute to ventricular tachyarrhythmias during acute myocardial ischemia (MI). However, the mechanism is not completely understood. This study investigated the effects of sympathetic nerve stimulation (SNS) on ventricular tachyarrhythmias and connexin43 (Cx43) during acute MI in rats. METHODS Ninety five male Wistar rats were randomly assigned into four groups receiving the following treatments: myocardial ischemia with… CONTINUE READING
