Cardiac and aortic pressures were recorded after stellate gangliooectomy and vagotomy. Acute heart block was produced by injecting the atrioventricular node, and atrial and ventricular systoles were controlled electronically to occur independently or in any desired relationship. Angiocardiograms recorded on video tape after injections of 4 ml 69% Renovist into the left ventricle were analyzed with a videodensitometer able to detect small refluxes of contrast medium into the left atrium and… CONTINUE READING
