Recovery of contractile function of myocardium stunned by a brief, transient period of regional ischemia is highly variable. In our experience, segment shortening (an index of regional systolic contractile function) assessed during the initial hours after a 15-minute period of coronary artery occlusion in anesthetized open-chest dogs ranged from -84 to +99% of normal preocclusion values. In this retrospective study, regression analysis was used to assess the effects of various parameters on… CONTINUE READING
