After myocardial infarction (MI), baroreflex function is impaired and heart rate (HR) variability is reduced. An impaired baroreflex has been observed also in coronary patients with no previous MI, leading to hypothesize alterations of HR variability also in these patients. The aim of the present work was, therefore, to study ...
