The antiarrhythmic action of metoclopramide in cardiac arrhythmias caused by toxic doses of desacetyl-lanatoside C and digitoxin was studied in dogs. A comparison was made between the efficacy of metoclopramide and diphenylhydantoin in arrhythmias caused by digitoxin. The results indicate that metoclopramide antagonized the arrhythmias induced by desacetyl-lanatoside C, while causing a transitory reversion of those induced by digitoxin in most of the experiments. Diphenylhydantoin failed to show an arrhythmic effect in the majority of the tested animals.
