A mechanical occluder was placed distal to the flowmeter in order to produce a controlled decrease in coronary flow. Pressure distal to the occluder (peripheral coronary pressure) was measured with a pressure transducer (Statham P23 Db) through an outlet in the connection. Arterial PO2, PCO2 and pH were frequently measured in samples drawn from the […]

Surgical preparation of dogs: Fourteen mongrel dogs of either sex between 11 and 17 […]

Nitric oxide participates in the regulation of coronary bloodflow during reactive hyperemia . This observation may imply that the release of nitric oxide is mediated by ischemia as a regulatory mechanism between the myocardial cell and the endothelial cell. However, it is uncertain whether the stimulus for production of nitric oxide in the endothelium during […]
