Reperfusion of coronary arteries after temporary occlusion in dogs.


The influence of previous pharmacotherapy or intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation (with thiamine infusion) on the effectiveness of reperfusion of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery after 150 minutes of occlusion has been studied in dogs. The infarct size was determined by morphometric method 20 hours after the onset of ischaemia. Reperfusion 150 minutes after the occlusion of the LAD coronary artery resulted in a smaller infarct; however, no protective effect from pharmacological or mechanical heart support during the period of ischaemia was observed.
