- Effects of cisapride on ventricular depolarization-repolarization and arrhythmia markers in infantsS A Zamora
Gastroenterology, Department of Pediatrics, University Hospital, Geneva, Switzerland
Biol Neonate 80:30-4. 2001..We conclude that cisapride prolongs ventricular repolarization in neonates and infants without altering depolarization. Although no clinical arrhythmias were observed the dose of 0.8 mg/kg/day should not be exceeded...
