a-Adrenergic Mechanisms in Myocardial Ischemia

Abstract

c-Adrenoceptor-mediated effects of sympathetic activation on the heart and coronary circulation are reviewed with emphasis on the pathophysiology of myocardial ischemia. A classification of a-adrenoceptor subtypes is presented, and the effects of a-adrenoceptor activation on presynaptic sympathetic nerve terminals, cardiomyocytes, endothelium, platelets… (More)
