Transmural coronary vasodilator reserve and flow distribution during maximal exercise in normal and splenectomized ponies.

1. Transmural distribution of myocardial blood flow was studied using 15 micron diameter radionuclide-labelled microspheres in six normal ponies and nine splenectomized ponies at rest, and during maximal exercise performed without as well as with adenosine infusion (3 microM kg-1 min-1). The splenectomized ponies were also studied during submaximal exercise… CONTINUE READING
