    Purpose: Dofetilide is class III antiarrhythmic agent which prolongs cardiac action potential duration because of selective inhibition of I, the rapid component of the delayed rectifier K current. Although clinical studies reported on proarrhythmic risk associated with dofetilide treatment, the...

    Purpose: In recent years, there has been a shift away from performing electrophysiologic study (EPS) to guide implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation with a reliance on left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) alone. Methods: ICD patients were prospectively recruited from the...

    Acute effects of heptanol (0.1 to 2 mM) on atrial electrophysiology were explored in Langendorff-perfused mouse hearts. Left atrial bipolar electrogram or monophasic action potential recordings were obtained during right atrial stimulation. Regular pacing at 8 Hz elicited atrial activity in 11...
