Infusion of L-arginine (a precursor of nitric oxide, NO) in cardioplegia was examined to test its effect on metabolism of myocardium after myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (IR). Twenty-eight patients undergoing valve replacement were involved and randomly divided into two groups: the control group (crystalloid cardioplegia) and the experimental group (crystalloid cardioplegia + L-arginine). Blood samples were taken both before aortic clamping and after aortic unclamping from right radial… CONTINUE READING
