Short- and long-term influence of beta-adrenergic antagonists after acute myocardial infarction.

Abstract

After coronary arterial occlusion, catecholamines are released from storage depots in the left ventricle and injured myocardial cells are exposed to relatively high concentrations of catecholamines during the evolutionary period in which cell injury is becoming progressively more severe. In addition, in experimental animal models, there is a substantial… (More)
