Novel pharmacological preconditioning with diazoxide attenuates myocardial stunning in coronary artery bypass grafting.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate whether novel pharmacological preconditioning with diazoxide could protect the myocardial function and decrease myocardial injury in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS Forty patients with stable angina who were scheduled for isolated elective CABG operations were randomized into control group (n=20… (More)
