OBJECTIVE In this study a comparison of the vascular reactivity in the coronary circulation was investigated by injection of acetylcholine (ACh) and adenosine (ADO) in coronary bypass patients, operated on with or without the assistance of heart-lung machine. The patients operated on with heart-lung machine were further divided into subjects with stable or unstable angina pectoris. METHODS Nine patients with stable angina pectoris subjected to off-pump surgery (target arterial occlusion time… CONTINUE READING
