Although there is evidence of partial sympathetic reinnervation late after transplantation, little is known about the relative frequency of sympathetic and, in particular, parasympathetic reinnervation. We examined the heart rate response to various maneuvers (standing up, handgrip exercise, phase 2 of Valsalva maneuver for sympathetic function, carotid sinus massage, phase 4 of Valsalva maneuver, and atropine for parasympathetic function) in 65 patients 3 to 110 months after transplantation… CONTINUE READING
