STUDY OBJECTIVE Intracoronary or intravenous adenosine during reperfusion in combination with lignocaine may attenuate "reperfusion injury" and limit myocardial infarct size in the canine heart. The aim of this study was to test whether intravenous adenosine also protects myocardium in the rabbit heart, which lacks xanthine oxidase and significant coronary… CONTINUE READING
