Ivabradine, a “sinus node inhibitor”, is now marketed in 27 European countries for the symptomatic treatment of chronic stable angina pectoris in patients with normal sinus rhythm who have a contraindication or intolerance to beta-blockers.
Ivabradine is at pure heart rate-lowering agent. Ivabradine works selectivily on the sinus node and has no effect on intracardiac conduction, myocardial contractility or ventricular repolarization.
