Abstract

The purpose of this review is to summarize current concepts regarding the sequelae of myocardial ischemia and reperfusion and the effects of calcium-channel blockers. This article will focus on three topics: (1) the phenomenon of postischemic myocardial dysfunction (myocardial 'stunning'); (2) the phenomenon of postischemic vascular dysfunction (microvascular 'stunning'); (3) the effects of calcium-channel blockers on myocardial ischemia and reperfusion injury.
