Retrograde cardioplegia (RCP) is often used for myocardial protection during coronary bypass grafting, but the regional effect of RCP in areas of evolving ischemia is unknown.

We examined the functional and metabolic indices of regional myocardial preservation following acute coronary occlusion with evolving ischemia in a canine by: 1. In an experimental study with a porcine model of acute coronary ischemia and reperfusion on cardiopulmonary bypass with cardioplegic arrest, hearts treated with GIK had a significant decrease in the incidence of ventricular arrhythmias, less tissue acidosis, better preservation of wall motion, and the lowest area of myocardial necrosis.

A reduction in infarct size, less myocardial Cited by:   Cardiovascular disease increases with age in both sexes. Treatment can require cardiac surgery, where the hearts are pre-treated with protective cardioplegic solution before ischemia and reperfusion (I/R).

While endogenous estrogen is beneficial in I/R, whether testosterone is involved is uncertain and whether age modifies responses to I/R is by: 2.

Background. Because hearts in acute myocardial infarction are often prone to ischemia-reperfusion damage during cardiac surgery, we investigated the influence of intracellular crystalloid cardioplegia solution (CCP) and extracellular blood cardioplegia solution (BCP) on cardiac function, metabolism, and infarct size in a rat heart model of myocardial infarction.

In all groups, PCR decreased immediately during ischemia and rapidly fell to low levels before recovering completely during the cardioplegic periods.

Interventions during cardioplegic arrest have also been shown to be less cardioprotective in the hypertrophic compared to the normal heart. For example, recovery of hypertrophic hearts exposed to pre-ischaemic pharmacological preconditioning and cardioplegic arrest had a lower recovery of hemodynamic parameters compared to normal Effect of annuloplasty ring implantation on tenting areas during acute myocardial ischemia: No_Ring_ISCH vs.

Ring_ISCH To date, neither clinical nor experimental in vivo studies exist comparing the effects of conventional annuloplasty rings to disease-specific FMR/IMR rings on mitral valve geometry or mitral annular dimensions during myocardial.

The proponents of this method argue that the duration of ischemia is shorter than during cardioplegic arrest (7) and that this method is as safe as cardioplegic arrest (8, 9). In our study we compared myocardial protection due to cardioplegic arrest and intermittend ischemia during coronary surgery.

Evaluation of "ischemia at a distance": effects of coronary occlusion on a remote area of left ventricle. Evidence as to how ACE inhibitors attenuate ischemia-reperfusion injury (IR) after cardioplegic arrest remains scarce. Twenty-four rabbit hearts were perfused on a Langendorff apparatus.

Control hearts (n = 6) were arrested with pure histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate (HTK)-Bretschneider. Treatment groups received added to the cardioplegic solution (n = 6) captopril (.

GIK has also been shown to be effective in improving cardiac function after cardiopulmonary bypass and cardioplegic arrest (16, 24).

Despite the renewed interest in GIK as a clinical intervention in acute myocardial infarction, there is a paucity of data regarding the utility of GIK in acute myocardial ischemia without infarction.

Ann. Hypothermic fibrillatory arrest (HFA) was compared with conventional hypothermic cardioplegic arrest (HCA) in a model of acute regional ischemia. In 20 pigs, the left anterior descending coronary artery was occluded for 30 minutes before cardiopulmonary bypass. We investigated the effect of chronic versus acute administration of the selective endothelin-A receptor antagonist (ERA) TBCNa during ischemia/reperfusion in failing hearts.

Male Sprague. In modern cardiac surgery, crystalloid or blood cardioplegic solutions have been used widely for myocardial protection; however, ischemia does occur during protection with intermittent infusion of.

LVDP was reduced during regional ischemia in all groups. However, during ischemia the reduction in LVDP tended to be smaller in non-persistently fibrillating hearts (P=) when compared with the rest of the hearts indicating a possible link between the effects of ischemia. A key issue is the monitoring of the myocardial metabolism during the cardioplegic period during which relevant plasma sampling cannot be carried out.

Sampling of the interstitial fluid of the myocardium by means of microdialysis before, during, and after open-heart surgery is now used also in the clinical situation (18, 19). The effects of two blood concentrations of propofol on acute severe regional myocardial ischaemia (minute occlusion of the LAD coronary artery) and 2-hour reperfusion were studied in 10 pigs.

During acute myocardial ischemia the metabolism of free fatty acids is impaired. Since the rate of beta-oxidation is reduced, the levels of acil-CoA and long-chain acyl-carnitine increase. Sixty minutes of regional ischemia followed by 60 minutes of hypothermic cardioplegic arrest was designed to mimic the clinical event of acute coronary occlusion (thrombosis) leading to ischemia followed by revascularization.

The exact mechanisms of the protective effects of HSPs against cellular injury remain unknown. myocardial ischemia is a life-threatening event that involves a mismatch between oxygen supply and demand.

It can occur in many contexts including atherosclerosis, coronary artery spasm, vasculitis, and during cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) (17, 34).Ischemia initiates several biological processes including altered metabolism, initiation of apoptosis, necrosis and fibrosis.

This study sought to determine the optimal timing for NO supplementation in the setting of cardioplegic arrest, regional ischemia, and reperfusion.

Although ischemic preconditioning initially referred to the ability of short periods of ischemia to limit infarct size, 1 some investigators extended this definition to include a beneficial effect on ischemia- and reperfusion-induced arrhythmias 2 and on myocardial stunning.
