Previous investigators have hypothesized that myocardial "stunning" may result either from a primary impairment in excitation or from electromechanical dissociation. Thrombolytic therapy and angioplasty have increased the importance of understanding the electrophysiologic effects of brief ischemia followed by reperfusion. We investigated the… CONTINUE READING
