Porcine gastroepiploic artery as an in vitro experimental model to study vasodilators in microsurgery.

Abstract

Arterial vasospasm is a common problem in microsurgery. This pharmacological study compares seven vasodilators-lidocaine, papaverine, nicardipine, verapamil, diltiazem, sodium nitroprusside, and hydralazine-for their efficacy and potency in an experimental model of vasospasm. Porcine gastroepiploic arteries were cut into rings to measure isometric tension… (More)
