Effect of delay in retroperfusion therapy on infarct size reduction.

Abstract

Retroperfusion of arterial blood through the coronary sinus reduces infarct size if therapy starts immediately after coronary artery occlusion. To determine if a new system of non-electrocardiogram-synchronized retroperfusion is able to reduce infarct size after delays consistent with clinical use, anesthetized pigs were subjected to 4 hours of left… (More)
