Simple method to produce acute heart failure by coronary vessel embolization in closed chest rats with microspheres.


Changes in left ventricle (LV) function, systemic, and regional hemodynamics as a result of coronary artery embolization by 15 microns microspheres were studied in rats. Selective coronary embolization was produced by injection of microspheres during ascending aorta occlusion animals by using an "L"-shaped wire in closed chest animals. Maximal developed LV… (More)
