Transmural left ventricular biopsies were studied from 28 patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass with anoxic cardiac arrest. The myocardium was protected by topical cooling (20 degrees C) (Group 1, 15 patients) or by cardioplegia with St. Thomas' solution (Group 2, 13 patients). Biopsies were taken at the start of bypass and 3 to 5 minutes after… CONTINUE READING
