The effects of allopurinol on the myocardial oxygen metabolism were studied in dogs with acute coronary artery occlusion. Upon occlusion of the contributory branch of the coronary artery, myocardial pO2, as measured with an improved polarographic technique, decreased to various lower values depending on the site of the electrode inserted. In the slightly… CONTINUE READING
