Recovery of the failing canine heart with biventricular support in a previously fatal experimental model.


Prolonged normothermic ischemia in the canine model is generally fatal with standard resuscitative techniques. To determine whether such myocardial injury is recoverable with biventricular support, we subjected 10 dogs to 45 minutes of ischemia at 37 degrees C. After ischemia, the animals were supported for 24 hours with biventricular assist with the… (More)
