ABSTRACT
Suggests a chain of events, originating in the clinical experience with papaverine as a vasodilating agent, which may explain the relative lack of attention paid to papaverine as an antiarrhythmic agent. Speculations and suggestions about how papaverine might best be used in antiarrhythmia treatment; Animal studies of papaverine as an antiarrhythmic agent; Clinical studies of papaverine as an antiarrhythmic agent.

    The effects of Dilatol have been observed in normal adults. When injected intramuscularly in doses of 5 mg and when given by mouth in doses of 10 mg it produces a fall in blood pressure with little effect on the pulse rate. The effect on blood pressure is largely to lower the diastolic pressure...

    Reports on a study to test the effect of beta-pyridil carbinol, available under the name of Roniacol, on a group of 40 subjects, 17 without peripheral angiopathy. Oral, intramuscular, intravenous and intra-arterial administration of Roniacol; Vasodilatory action which was shown fundamentally at...

    1. Oscillometry has proven of no help in the evaluation of acute responses to vaso-dilator drugs. 2. Surface temperature changes do not permit conclusive interpretation unless they are recorded automatically in a constant temperature room under controlled conditions with the use of tested criteria.

    Patients with subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) have impaired endothelial function probably related to dyslipidemia. The present study compares the effects of simvastatin versus levothyroxine (LT-4) treatment on lipid profile and endothelial function in patients with SCH. Fifty-nine patients with...

    Isoxsuprine (Vasodilan) is an effective and safe drug, at the recommended dosages, for symptomatic treatment of patients suffering from any of several disorders of peripheral or intracraneal circulation. This statement is supported by published reports and by our own experience. In addition...

    The article discusses work in the field of the physiology of vasodilatation. In contrast to passive dilatation which is brought about by a decrease in constrictor substance, active dilatation reflects an increase in vasoactive substance at the blood vessel level. Active dilatation also differs...

    A new test in which environmental temperature and sedation are utilized to induce vasoconstriction and vasodilatation has been described. Preliminary experience indicates that it is simple and satisfactory, and that it is better tolerated than most methods in current use. The importance of the...

    We have presented a ease of angina pectoris with arteriographic demonstration of spasm of the coronary arteries. Experimental evidence has been offered favoring a causal relationship between the release of this spasm and the administration of a new coronary vasodilator.
