Muscarinic receptor upregulation in patients with myocardial infarction: a new paradigm.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Despite the major role attributed to myocardial vagal activity in left ventricular arrhythmogenesis in chronic myocardial infarction, the impact of infarction on left ventricular muscarinic receptor density remains unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS Left ventricular muscarinic receptor density was measured in vivo by positron emission tomography… (More)
