Pressure-flow relations in the canine hindlimb can be well explained by a vascular waterfall at the arteriolar level. Under these conditions, P(art) = Pcrit + Q.Rart, where P(art) is the arterial pressure, Pcrit is the waterfall pressure, Q is regional flow, and Rart is the arterial resistance of the vessels ...

OLD VERSUS NEWER DIHYDROPYRIDINE CALCIUM ANTAGONISTS: First-generation dihydropyridines have a short duration of antihypertensive action, which requires more than one daily dose in order to produce a relatively 'smooth' antihypertensive effect. However, more recent molecules or preparations have been shown to possess a much longer and smoother action. TROUGH:PEAK RATIOS ...

Little W C - - 1994
As vascular smooth muscle tone and myocardial contractility both depend on calcium entry, the calcium antagonists are not only potent arterial vasodilators, but may also have important negative inotropic effects. For example, verapamil is nearly equipotent in reducing vascular smooth muscle tone and myocardial contraction in isolated tissue preparations. In ...
Stepien M - - 1994
The cardiovascular effect of a single intravenous dose of doxorubicin (DXR) given to the rabbits pretreated intravenously for 3 weeks with DXR, verapamil (Vp) or both drugs was investigated. It was found that cardiac index and stroke index were higher in the rabbits pretreated with DXR plus Vp than with ...

Alteration of calcium metabolism and changes in the levels of calcium-regulating hormones have been described in essential hypertension. In the majority of the reported clinical trials, calcium supplementation has resulted in a decrease in blood pressure. However, the mechanisms by which such a response would be mediated are entirely unknown. ...

Because of its positive inotropic effects that are independent of cyclic AMP, insulin was compared to epinephrine and glucagon as a novel treatment for cardiac toxicity from verapamil. Twenty-four alpha-chloralose-anesthetized mongrel canines of either sex were instrumented to monitor standard hemodynamic and cardiodynamic parameters and maximum elastance at end systole, ...

The efficacy and safety of once-daily nifedipine coat-core, a new, extended-release formulation, were examined in 245 patients with essential hypertension in this 10-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study. Mean net reductions in trough supine diastolic blood pressure at endpoint were 6.5 mmHg, 7.7 mmHg, and 11.7 mmHg at 30, ...
Jolly S R - - 1993
Verapamil can produce depression of left ventricular function, delayed atrioventricular conduction, and hypotension, which can be potentiated by hyperkalemia. We sought to investigate a direct cardiac interaction between verapamil and hyperkalemia. Studies utilized isolated guinea pig hearts (Langendorff) paced at 250 beats/min. Hearts were randomly assigned to perfusion (Krebs-Henseleit buffer) ...
