Hemodynamic and biochemical changes in severe induced subtotal ischemia of the leg. Studies with a pig model.

To investigate hemodynamic and biochemical changes in acutely ischemic leg muscle, the arterial flow to one hind leg was reduced to 5% of resting flow in nine pigs. Blood sampled from the aortic arch and femoral vein before and during ischemia and during 2.5 hours of reperfusion was analyzed and blood flow was measured in the femoral artery. The flow… CONTINUE READING
