Abstract

Oxygen-derived free radicals play an important role in myocardial injury associated ischemia and reperfusion. To investigate whether ginsenosides, as an additive agent of cardioplegic solution, can decrease toxicity of oxygen free radicals in myocardial injury, a heterotopic heart transplantation model in Wistar rats was employed. St. Thomas II cold… (More)
