Epicardial coronary arteries dilate after release of a transient coronary occlusion in awake chronically instrumented dogs but not in anesthetized dogs studied acutely after surgery. To determine whether anesthesia or surgical trauma is responsible for this lack of reactive dilation, we evaluated the effect of anesthesia on reactive coronary dilation in six… CONTINUE READING
