Augmenting intracellular adenosine improves myocardial recovery.


The objective of this study was to determine if augmentation of myocardial adenosine levels during global ischemia improves functional recovery after reperfusion. Isolated adult rabbit hearts were subjected to 120 minutes of mildly hypothermic ischemia (34 degrees C) with modified St. Thomas' Hospital cardioplegic solution used to provide myocardial… (More)
