Morphological and cytochemical effects of stable prostacyclin analog, iloprost were studied on isolated and perfused guinea-pig hearts according to Langendorff in Ca-free and Ca paradox conditions. Samples from the papillary muscles and left ventricular wall-muscles were examined. For calcium cytochemistry lead acetate and potassium pyroantimonate, and for nickel cytochemistry dimethylglyoxime (DMG) techniques were used. Electron microscopic studies showed that during Ca-free perfusion (for 15…
