In a controlled, randomized study the myocardial uptake/release of individual free fatty acids, glucose, lactate, pyruvate, alanine, and glycerol was studied 1 hour after completion of coronary operations. The effects of insulin were evaluated by means of a hyperinsulinemic "clamp" technique. No significant uptake of free fatty acids was found despite markedly elevated arterial concentrations (mean +/- standard error of the mean, 2.01 +/- 0.19 mmol.L-1), oleic acid, together with palmitic and… CONTINUE READING
