Interference with the prostaglandin system as a therapeutical concept to protect the myocardium during ischemic stress: experimental studies with inhibition of thromboxane synthesis.

Abstract

The characterization of thromboxane A2 as vasoconstrictor and potent stimulus of platelet aggregation has led to attempts to overcome these effects obviously unfavourable in ischemia. As an attractive approach, we examined potentially protective results of thromboxane synthetase inhibition on canine myocardium stressed by transient ischemia, using as… (More)
