Intravenous administration of adenosine triphosphate disodium during primary percutaneous coronary intervention attenuates the transient rapid improvement of myocardial wall motion, not myocardial stunning, shortly after recanalization in acute anterior myocardial infarction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Administration of adenosine attenuates myocardial stunning after reperfusion in a canine experimental ischemic model. However, it is unknown whether administration of adenosine triphosphate disodium (ATP) during reperfusion can attenuate myocardial stunning after coronary recanalization in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI… (More)
