The effect of coronary artery reperfusion on infarct size was studied in a pig heart model. Forty four open chest pigs underwent occlusion of the mid-left anterior descending artery. Fifteen minutes after occlusion the animals were randomised to one of five groups: reperfusion at 30, 45, 60, or 90 min after occlusion (groups 1-4) or permanent occlusion… CONTINUE READING
