Experimental Subendocardial Ischemia in Dogs with Normal Coronary Arteries
Subendocardial ischemia without anatomic coronary artery obstruction may result from a discrepancy between metabolic needs and available blood supply. We studied this in open-chest anesthetized dogsExpand

Cardiac Mechanics Revisited: The Relationship of Cardiac Architecture to Ventricular Function
The keynote to understanding cardiac function is recognizing the underlying architecture responsible for the contractile mechanisms that produce the narrowing, shortening, lengthening, widening, andExpand

Surgical ventricular restoration in the treatment of congestive heart failure due to post-infarction ventricular dilation.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to test how surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) affects early and late survival in a registry of 1,198 post-anterior infarction congestive heart failureExpand

Spatial orientation of the ventricular muscle band: physiologic contribution and surgical implications.
I t has been proposed that the ventricular myocardium, both right (RV) and left (LV), exists as a continuous muscle band.1-4 The band is oriented spatially as a helix formed by basal and apicalExpand

Sodium-hydrogen exchange inhibition by cariporide to reduce the risk of ischemic cardiac events in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting: results of the EXPEDITION study.
BACKGROUND The EXPEDITION study addressed the efficacy and safety of inhibiting the sodium hydrogen exchanger isoform-1 (NHE-1) by cariporide in the prevention of death or myocardial infarction (MI)Expand

The structure and function of the helical heart and its buttress wrapping. I. The normal macroscopic structure of the heart.
The Gordian knot of anatomy has been the architectural arrangement of ventricular muscle mass, which may have finally become understood. The description of Francisco Torrent-Guasp's model of theExpand

Studies of the effects of hypothermia on regional myocardial blood flow and metabolism during cardiopulmonary bypass. I. The adequately perfused beating, fibrillating, and arrested heart.
The effects of hypothermia (32 degrees, 28 degrees, and 22 degrees C.) on left ventricular flow distribution (microspheres) and oxygen uptake in adequately perfused, beating, empty, fibrillating, andExpand
