Hi Sandi:

I am not aware of any work on axolotl heart regeneration.  Oberpriller
et al studied regenerative events in the newt heart a few years ago.
References follow.  This is the only work that I can remember reading on
urodele heart regeneration.

TI Autoradiographic and electron microscopic studies of minced cardiac
   muscle regeneration in the adult newt, Notophthalmus viridescens
AU Bader, D., Oberpriller, J.
YR 1979
SO J. Exp. Zool., 208: 177-194.

TI Response of the adult newt ventricle to injury
AU Oberpriller, J.O., Oberpriller, J.C.
YR 1974
SO J. Exp. Zool., 187: 249-260.

TI Mitosis in adult newt ventricle
AU Oberpriller, J., Oberpriller, J.C.
YR 1971
SO Journal of Cell Biology, 49: 560-563.

TI The atrial proliferative response following partial ventricular
   amputation in the heart of the adult newt. A light and electron
   microscopic autoradiographic study
AU McDonnell, T.J., Oberpriller, J.O.                    
YR 1983
SO Tissue & Cell., 15: 351-363.

TI The response of the atrium to direct mechanical wounding in the adult
   heart of the newt, Notophthalmus viridescens. An
   electron-microscopic and autoradiographic study
AU McDonnell, T.J., Oberpriller, J.O.
YR 1984

Cheers,
