BACKGROUND Previous studies have demonstrated myocardial salvage by basic fibroblast growth factor administration following chronic myocardial ischemia or acute myocardial infarction. OBJECTIVES To study the effect of bFGF on left ventricular morphometry following coronary occlusion and reperfusion episode in rats. METHODS bFGF (0.5 mg) or placebo was… CONTINUE READING
