Effect of nicorandil on post-ischaemic contractile dysfunction in the heart: roles of its ATP-sensitive K+ channel opening property and nitrate property.


1. This study aimed to characterize the effect of nicorandil (NC) on myocardial stunning and the role of ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channel opening property in its cardioprotective action. 2. In open-chest anaesthetized rabbits, myocardial stunning was induced by 10 min of coronary occlusion followed by 30 min of reperfusion. As an index of regional… (More)
