BACKGROUND The mechanisms underlying inappropriate sinus tachycardia are not fully known. An autonomic imbalance seems to play a role, but no attempts have been made to investigate a relationship between this arrhythmia and the antiautonomic membrane receptor antibodies found in other heart disorders and arrhythmias. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence and the functional and biochemical effects of circulating antiautonomic receptor antibodies in patients with… CONTINUE READING
