Improvement of preservation with cardioplegic solution by nitroglycerin-induced delayed preconditioning was studied in the isolated rat heart. The isolated rat heart was arrested using St. Thomas Hospital solution, and then reperfused with normothermic Krebs-Henseleit solution for 40 min after a 4-h hypothermic ischemic period. Heart rate, coronary flow, left ventricular pressure and the maximum value of the first derivatives of left ventricular pressure (+/-dp/dt(max)) were recorded, and… CONTINUE READING
