Abstract(s)In their comment to our recent paper entitled “Stressed Brain, Diseases Heart: A review on the pathophysiologic mechanisms of neurocardiology.” [1], Dominguez-Rodriguez and Abreu-Gonzalez [2] emphasize the relevance of circadian rhythm in cardiovascular diseases and propose the suprachiasmatic nucleus and melatonin as key mediators in its pathophysiology. We found this a very interesting observation. The incidence of acute myocardial infarction [3] and its extension [4] displays a circadian pattern usually peaking in early morning.
