Commotio cordis, mechanical induction of heart rhythm disturbances, including sudden cardiac death, in the absence of corresponding structural damage, has been reported with increasing frequency in young individuals participating in sporting activities. Recently, the electrophysiological changes during c. cordis have been attributed to mechano-electric feedback, and particularly, to the recruitment of stretch-activated ion channels. The underlying mechanisms, however, by which a mechanical… CONTINUE READING
