Ranolazine: an antianginal drug with antiarrhythmic properties.

Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2011 Jul;9(7):815-27, PMID: 21809962

Ranolazine is an agent approved for the symptomatic treatment of chronic stable angina that inhibits the late inward sodium current (I(NaL)). I(NaL) amplitude is increased under several pathological conditions, including increased oxidative stress, myocardial ischemia, cardiac hypertrophy, heart failure, long-QT syndrome variant 3 and atrial fibrillation. Experimental and preliminary clinical evidence suggests that ranolazine may represent a new therapeutic strategy in the treatment of a broad spectrum of cardiac arrhythmias. This article reviews the role of the I(NaL) and provides an update on experimental and clinical evidence supporting the efficacy and safety of ranolazine across a broad spectrum of arrhythmias.
