Cardiac tamponade or the presence of ischemia leading to acute myocardial infarction may require emergency cardiac surgery. Surgical treatment of perforation or rupture of the coronary arteries is based on prolonged(More)
Terazosin, a selective alpha 1-adrenergic antagonist, was administered intravenously to 10 patients undergoing cardiac catheterization to determine its short-term hemodynamic effects. Hemodynamic measurements were performed before and 30 minutes after three doses of the drug: 1, 1, and 3 mg. One milligram of terazosin reduced the blood pressure(More)
