Acute cardiac ischemia and reperfusion: contractility, relaxation, and glycolysis.


The mechanical and metabolic effects of 3 min of complete global ischemia and 25 min of reperfusion were studied in the isolated rat heart. The decrease in contracile function was biphasic; a rapid 50% decline occurred in the first 10 s of ischemia, after which contractile function transiently stabilized and then fell at a slower rate. During reperfusion… (More)
