Effect of diltiazem on functional recovery and myocardial metabolism during hypothermic global ischemia and normothermic reperfusion

Abstract

An isolated working rat heart preparation was used to determine the effect of diltiazem, a calcium antagonist, on the myocardial metabolism and functional recovery in the ischemic and reperfused heart, under conditions of 15°C of topical hypothermia. The hearts were divided into two groups according to the solution injected into aortic root at the onset of… (More)
