Abstract

Based on animal data it has been hypothesised that lungs may regulate systemic fibrinolysis. To test this hypothesis 12 patients undergoing infrarenal aortic reconstruction due to arteriosclerotic disease were evaluated for influence of the respiratory pattern on release of tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and its inhibitor (PAI) in systemic and… (More)
