S-T segment voltage during sequential coronary occlusions is an unreliable marker of preconditioning.

Abstract

During coronary angioplasty, a stair-step decrease in peak S-T segment elevation from the first to the second coronary occlusion has been assumed to indicate a preconditioning (PC) effect. This association was evaluated with myocardial electrograms in rabbits, which revealed that two sequential 5-min coronary occlusions resulted in a marked decrease in the… (More)
