QRS/T-wave and calcium alternans in a type I diabetic mouse model for spontaneous postmyocardial infarction ventricular tachycardia: A mechanism for the antiarrhythmic effect of statins.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The incidence of sudden arrhythmic death is markedly increased in diabetics. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to develop a mouse model for postmyocardial infarction (post-MI) ventricular tachycardia (VT) in the diabetic heart and determine the mechanism of an antiarrhythmic effect of statins. METHODS ECG transmitters were implanted in… (More)
