Pyruvate/dichloroacetate supply during reperfusion accelerates recovery of cardiac energetics and improves mechanical function following cardioplegic arrest.


OBJECTIVES Cardioplegic arrest during cardiac surgery induces severe abnormalities of the pyruvate metabolism, which may affect functional recovery of the heart. We aimed to evaluate the effect of pyruvate and dichloroacetate administration during reperfusion on recovery of mechanical function and energy metabolism in the heart subjected to prolonged… (More)
