Ischemic damage and metabolism during elective cardiac arrest.


Isolated perfused working rat hearts were subjected to elective cardiac arrest for 20 or 30 min. Various methods of arrest were studied, either singly or in combination and with or without coronary perfusion. The functional recovery of the heart following the termination of arrest was found to be related to the concentration of ATP and creatine phosphate in… (More)
