BACKGROUND Cross-sectional studies suggest, by use of heart rate variability (HRV), that partial re-innervation of the sinus node may occur after heart transplantation (HTx). Our aim was to test this hypothesis by examining HRV in long-term longitudinal follow-up study of HTx recipients. METHODS AND RESULTS 14 HTx recipients (11 men) were studied 1-48 (median 13) months (baseline) and 119-172 (median 141) months after HTx (follow-up). At baseline and follow-up, electrocardiographic RR… CONTINUE READING
