Effects of nitroglycerin on diameter and pulsation amplitude of subendocardial arterioles in beating porcine heart.

Abstract

We examined the effect of nitroglycerin (NTG) on the diameter and diastolic-to-systolic pulsation amplitude of large (ID > 100 microns) and small (ID < 100 microns) subendocardial arterioles with their segmental responses. In 10 open-chest, anesthetized pigs, subendocardial arterioles of beating hearts (n = 18) were videorecorded using a needle-probe… (More)
