During the development of the “electrolytesteroid-cardiopathy with necroses” (ESCN) in rats, there is a decrease of myocardial potassium in the group bound to develop the cardiac necroses. A similar variation was observed in the control animals treated with a noncardiotoxic association of steroid and electrolytes. Only after the necrosis had been established was an important increase of sodium and decrease of potassium observed. On the basis of these and other previously deseribed facts, the… Expand
Sodium and potassium in the pathogenesis of the "electrolyte-steroid cardiopathy with necrosis".
Following the decrease of myocardial potassium produced by 9α-fluorocortisol (F-COL), the administration of certain Na-salts causes a considerable increase in the sodium content of the heart. TheExpand
Chlorides, Potassium and Experimental Cardiac Necroses
It is known that the cardiac necroses produced by 9α-fluorocortisol (F-COL) plus Na2HPO4 are prevented by the administration of chlorides or potassium salts. In this paper it is shown that variousExpand
Potassium, cardiac necroses and amiloride.
Abstract Administration of amiloride (a potassium-retaining diuretic) prevented the development of the electrolyte-steroid cardiopathy in the rat. This compound corrected the intracellular decreaseExpand
The role of electrolyte disturbances and extracellular alkalosis in metabolic cardiac necrosis and the preventive effect of amiloride.
TLDR
R Rats treated with fluorocortisol exhibited hypokalemic, hypochloremic extracellular alkalosis and a diminution of the potassium content of the heart and skeletal muscles and this condition provided a condition in which lipids regularly induced acute cardiac necroses associated with an increase of myocardial sodium.

TLDR
The experimental “aging” exemplified in the progeria‐like syndrome (induced by dihydrotachysterol, DHT, in rats) is not the cause but the consequence of disturbed calcium metabolism, and the anti‐DHT effect of the steroids is not due to their antimineralocorticoid or anabolic action, but to their catatoxic (antitoxic) potency.

Myocardial Infarction, Experimental Cardiac Necroses, and Potassium
TLDR
The problem of human myocardial infarction passed through stage 2 when everybody was happy with the explanation that the syndrome was produced by a sudden occlusion of a branch of a coronary artery with subsequent acute ischemia and necrosis of the area supplied by the occluded vessel. Expand

TLDR
It will be demonstrated in this paper that similar sequential alterations of the myocardia electrolyte pattern accompany the evolution and healing of disseminated myocardial necrosis from unrelated noxae. Expand
Testosterone-induced focal myocarditis in rats. I. Morphological and biochemical studies with special reference to pathogenetical mechanism and species differences.
TLDR
It is concluded that focal myocarditis in rats after administration of large amounts of testosterone propionate is related to the elevation of deoxycorticosterone in blood plasma but not to the direct effects of testosterone Propionate on the myocardium. Expand

TLDR
The inability to find an acute coronary occlusion in a patient who died with manifestations of acute cardiac infarction must not be necessarily ascribed to an oversight on the part of the pathologist. Expand
Effect of nicotine on cardiac necrosis induced by isoproterenol.
TLDR
The average severity of myocardial lesions produced by the injection of isoproterenol was not increased by the prior administration of “2-pack equivalents” (2.28 mg. per kilogram) of nicotine per day for 7 days, and the lack of a consistent relationship between lesion severity andMyocardial potassium content is discussed.

Pathogenesis of “Electrolyte‐Steroid‐Cardiopathy”
TLDR
It is concluded that the “electro lyte-steroid-cardiopathy” results from a simple intracellular potassium deficiency and its sequelae, and that the roles of the steroid-cathartic electrolyte, and other agents and procedures are to induce potassium depletion by various mechanisms. Expand
The production of secondary potassium depletion, sodium retention, nephrocalcinosis and hypercalcaemia by magnesium deficiency.
TLDR
The failure of magnesium-deficient diets to produce changes of magnesium content in the soft tissues contrasts with the marked decreases in muscle potassium produced by potassium deficiency (Heppel, 1939). Expand
