Effects of flunitrazepam on left ventricular performance, coronary haemodynamics and myocardial metabolism in patients with coronary artery disease.

Abstract

The effects of flunitrazepam 15 micrograms kg-1, on left ventricular (LV) performance, coronary sinus blood flow (CSBF), myocardial oxygen uptake and myocardial lactate balance were studied in nine patients with coronary artery disease undergoing cardiac catheterization. Flunitrazepam produced a decrease in mean aortic pressure (MAP) and in systemic… (More)
