Effect of adrenergic stimulation on Rb(+) uptake in normal and ischemic areas of isolated pig hearts: (87)Rb MRI study.

Abstract

The role of adrenergic stimulation in Rb(+) uptake in normal and ischemic areas of pig hearts was investigated using an agonist (dobutamine) and an antagonist (S-propranolol). The left anterior descending artery (LAD) in isolated pig hearts was cannulated to maintain adequate perfusion of the LAD bed (2.2-2.8 ml/min/g). Rb(+) loading was initiated by… (More)
