An experimental model of myocardial infarction and controlled reperfusion using a miniaturized cardiopulmonary bypass in rats.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Different revascularization strategies for patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) exist. It remains unclear whether ventricular unloading using cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) or extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has an impact on early postischaemic ventricular function. Here, we report on the results of an approach using a miniaturized… (More)
