Numerous recent observations have indicated autonomic reinnervation of transplanted human hearts. In order to assess autonomic regulation 5 patients were studied 1 to 5 years following cardiac transplantation. A series of tests were performed, including blood pressure and ECG recordings on rest, during 15/min patterned breathing, isometric handgrip exercise, and Valsalva manoeuvre. The time domain indices (SDRR, pNN50, rMSSD) and the frequency domain indices of heart rate variability were also studied. Among the five patients under study only one exhibited features compatible with both sympathetic and parasympathetic reinnervation. Traditional autonomic reflex tests and the analysis of time and frequency domain indices of HRV serve as simple tool in primary assessment of cardiac reinnervation.
