Influence of basal release of nitric oxide on systolic and diastolic function of both ventricles.


Nitric oxide is continuously released by coronary artery endothelium under basal conditions; it maintains vascular tone and regulates coronary blood flow. The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of this basal release of nitric oxide on right and left ventricular systolic and diastolic function. Isolated pig hearts perfused at a constant… (More)
