Role of nitric oxide in regulation of coronary blood flow in response to increased metabolic demand in dogs with pacing-induced heart failure.


The role of endothelium-derived nitric oxide (NO) in the metabolic control of coronary blood flow (CBF) in heart failure (HF) is poorly understood, so the present study investigated the effects of inhibitors of NO synthesis on the response of CBF to changes in myocardial oxygen consumption (MVO2) in dogs with HF produced by rapid ventricular pacing and in… (More)
