Left-to-right ventricular differences in I(KATP) underlie epicardial repolarization gradient during global ischemia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The ionic mechanisms of electrical heterogeneity in the ischemic ventricular epicardium remain poorly understood. OBJECTIVE This study sought to test the hypothesis that the adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-activated K+ current (I(KATP)) plays an important role in mediating repolarization differences between the right ventricle (RV) and left… (More)
