Detection of latent function in acutely ischemic myocardium in the dog: comparison of pharmacologic inotropic stimulation and postextrasystolic potentiation.

Abstract

In poorly perfused myocardium with resultant ischemic dysfunction, augmentation of contractility can, under certain conditions, be used to detect viable but ordinarily noncontracting muscle. Two methods of inotropic augmentation, pharmacologic inotropic stimulation and postextrasystolic potentiation (PESP), were studied in acutely ischemic canine myocardium… (More)
