Heterogeneity of local myocardial flow and oxidative metabolism.

Abstract

In mammalian hearts, local myocardial flow (LMF) varies between 20 and 200% of the mean. It is not clear whether oxidative metabolism has a similar degree of heterogeneity. Therefore, we investigated the relation between LMF and local oxidative metabolism in isolated rabbit hearts. Buffer oxygenation with (18)O(2) resulted in labeled myocardial oxidation… (More)
