Similar antiischemic effects of intracoronary atenolol and nifedipine during brief coronary occlusions in humans


To compare the antiischemic effects of intracoronary administration of a beta blocker, atenolol, and of a calcium antagonist, nifedipine, on the clinical and electrocardiographic signs of myocardial ischemia induced by balloon occlusion of the coronary artery, we studied 32 consecutive patients undergoing routine PTCA. In each patient at least three balloon… (More)
