Ischemic Preconditioning and Infarct Size 1135 Myocardial Blood Flow Measurements Blood flow measurements

oxygen demand in the stunned region and increases tolerance of myocardium to longer periods of ischemia. Wall function was quantified with ultrasonic crystals aligned to measure wall thickening, and stunning was achieved with two cycles of left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) occlusion (10 minutes) and reperfusion (30 minutes), after which the LAD… CONTINUE READING
