Nitroglycerine-responsive ischemic irregular premature ventricular con- tractions post-failure of antiarrhythmic drugs in hypertensive crises and first-degree heart block

   Nitroglycerin (NTG) is an ancient commonly prescribed short- acting anti-anginal agent [1]. Nitrates produce vasodilation with predominant venous effects on large capacitance ves- sels. They also increase coronary collateral circulation, in- crease aortic compliance, and conductance and blood flow to ischemic areas of the myocardium.
