Background and purpose: Current strategies to ameliorate cardiac ischaemic and reperfusion damage, including block of the sodium-hydrogen exchanger, are therapeutically ineffective. Here we propose a different approach, block of the persistent sodium current (INaP). Experimental approach: Left ventricular pressure was measured as an index of functional deficit in isolated, Langendorff perfused, hearts from adult rats, subjected to 30 min global ischaemia and reperfusion with vehicle only...[Show more]
