Effects of intraaortic balloon counterpulsation on regional myocardial function during acute coronary occlusion in the dog.

Abstract

The effects of intraaortic counterpulsation on regional myocardial function were studied using ultrasonic dimension gauges in 24 open chest dogs. Pairs of ultrasonic crystals were implanted in the subendocardium of the left ventricle in control, marginally ischemic and ischemic segments. After coronary arterial occlusion, the end-diastolic length of all… (More)
