    Introduction: Amiodarone is an effective drug for life-threatening arrhythmias like recurrent ventricular fibrillation and atrial fibrillation. Amiodarone creates rarely genitourinary side effects are seen. These are epididymitis, testicular dysfunction and impotance. Amiodarone aggregates and...

    The vasovagal response is characterized by an inappropriate combination of bradycardia and paradoxical vasodilation. During a general or neuraxial anesthesia-induced sympathectomy, a sudden vagal activation and/or an acute reduction in sympathetic tone can cause serious vasovagal responses....

    Background:: Patients with chronic cardiac failure (CCF) have abnormal vascular responses. Bradykinin (BK) is thought to contribute to the vasodilator effects of ACE inhibitors, but the effect of BK itself in patients with CCF has not been examined.

    The article suggests that recent clinical trials do not provide a definite answer as to whether amiodarone is safe in heart failure. Two trials, GESICA and CHF-STAT, have been at the centre of the debate. The conflicting results of these trials have been attributed to differences in the severity...
