          Myocardial Turnover of Endogenous Opioids and Calcitonin-Gene-Related Peptide in the Human Heart and the Effects of Spinal Cord Stimulation on Pacing-Induced Angina Pectoris

          Earlier studies have shown that spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has antianginal and anti-ischemic effects in severe coronary artery disease. In the present study, 14 patients were subjected to right-sided atrial catheterization and atrial pacing. The patients were paced to angina during a control session and during spinal cord stimulation. Myocardial extraction of β-endorphin (BE) during control pacing (8 ± 22%) changed to release at the maximum pacing rate during treatment (–21 ± 47%, a negative value representing release). Furthermore, the results indicate local myocardial turnover of leuenkephalin, BE and calcitonin-gene-related peptide. In addition, it is implied that SCS may induce myocardial release of BE which could explain the beneficial effects in myocardial ischemia.
