Effects of pre-ischemic and post-ischemic treatment with FR 168888 (5-hydroxymethyl-3-(pyrrol-1-yl) benzoylguanidine methanesulfonate), a Na+/H+ exchange inhibitor, on reperfusion-induced ventricular arrhythmias were examined in an ischemia/reperfusion model of anesthetized rat. FR 168888 (0.3 mg/kg) significantly reduced the incidence of ventricular fibrillation (VF) and mortality induced by reperfusion following 5-min coronary occlusion, when it was intravenously administered 5 min before… CONTINUE READING
