Abstract

There were no significant changes in plasma 5-HT in children with VVS during baseline, syncope or pre-syncope, which suggests that plasma 5-HT might not be valuable for the prediction of syncope trigger. However, platelet 5-HT of VVS children was obviously higher during syncope and presyncope, which suggests that central serotonergic system might be involved in the pathogenesis of VVS.
