Role of nitric oxide in regulation of coronary blood flow during myocardial ischemia in dogs.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES This study was undertaken to examine whether nitric oxide released in ischemic myocardium decreases the coronary vascular resistance and attenuates the severity of contractile and metabolic dysfunction. BACKGROUND Endothelium-derived relaxing factor, recently identified as nitric oxide, is a potent relaxant of coronary smooth muscle. METHODS… (More)
