A new model for testing therapeutic interventions during myocardial ischemia.


An open-chest dog heart model is presented which shows highly reproducible hemodynamic, electrophysiologic, and metabolic changes during and after short-term coronary occlusions. We repeatedly performed 3-min coronary ligations of the proximal ramus interventricularis anterior followed by reperfusion periods of 45 min. Thus, hemodynamic, metabolic, and… (More)
