Effects of perfusion pressure augmentation with methoxamine on transmural distribution and adequacy of coronary blood flow during cardiopulmonary bypass were investigated. Flow in normal, nonworking canine hearts was measured with tracer microspheres and electromagnetic flow probes while heart rate, myocardial oxygen consumption, left ventricular contractility and epicardial ST-segment stability were monitored. Measurements during normotensive cardiopulmonary bypass were compared with values… CONTINUE READING
