OBJECTIVE Therapeutic angiogenesis is an alternative method of revascularization for end-stage coronary artery disease. We determined the effects of intramyocardial and intracoronary basic fibroblast growth factor 2 on myocardial blood flow and function in a porcine model of hibernating myocardium. METHODS Twenty-four mini-swine with 90% left circumflex… CONTINUE READING
