1. Dibekacin (70 μM-3 mM) produced a decrease of peak tetanic tension in a concentration-dependent manner and this effect was dependent on extracellular calcium (0.3-2.5 mM Ca2+). Only minimal fade was observed and it was not related with extracellular calcium concentrations. 2. Diltiazem (30-300 μM) decreased peak tetanic tension and produced tetanic fade. Both effects were independent of extracellular calcium, although a significant potentiation was observed at 0.3 mM calcium. 3. It is concluded that tetanic parameters are related differently to extracellular calcium. © 1990.
