Diminished basal nitric oxide release after myocardial ischemia and reperfusion promotes neutrophil adherence to coronary endothelium.


We measured changes in basal release of nitric oxide and its effect on polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) adherence to endothelial cells (ECs) in a feline model of myocardial ischemia (90 minutes) and reperfusion. Basal release of nitric oxide from the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) after myocardial ischemia/reperfusion and from the control… (More)
