Landiolol reduces coronary artery motion in an open-chest porcine model: implications for off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery

Abstract

Reduction of target coronary artery motion is imperative for successful off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. We hypothesized that landiolol, a novel ultra-short-acting selective β-1 blocker, would reduce such coronary artery motion. To test this hypothesis, the motion of the left anterior descending artery of the porcine heart (n = 8) was analyzed by… (More)
