Prevention of postischemic reperfusion injury: The improvement of myocardial tissue blood flow after ischemia by terminal Nicorandil-Mg cardioplegia

Abstract

We evaluated the preventive effect of postischemic reperfusion injury by Nicorandil-Mg cardioplegia given just prior to reperfusion as “terminal cardioplegia.” Twenty seven dogs were placed on cardiopulmonary bypass and the aorta was cross-clamped for 90 min under hypothermic (17–19°C) cardioplegic arrest. The canine hearts were divided into three groups… (More)
