Abstract: Growth hormone, currently under evaluation for the prevention of left ventricular remodeling post-myocardial infarction, displays antiarrhythmic properties in the acute setting. However, it is uncertain whether these actions are retained after ischemia/reperfusion. Using implanted telemetry transmitters, we examined the effects of prolonged, intra-myocardial growth hormone administration in conscious rats. During a 24-h observation period, ventricular tachyarrhythmias and sympathetic activation were attenuated in treated rats, whereas infarct-size was unchanged. These findings call for further study on the antiarrhythmic effects of growth hormone and on the underlying mechanisms.
