Alterations in regional myocardial blood flow after nitroprusside and nitroglycerin in patients with and without significant coronary artery disease.

Abstract

To evaluate vasodilator-induced redistribution of regional myocardial blood flow, intravenous sodium nitroprusside and nitroglycerin were administered in doses producing matched reductions (15%) in mean arterial pressure at constant heart rate. Anterior left ventricular great cardiac vein blood flow (thermodilution) was measured in 14 patients without… (More)
