  • The effects of calsium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) ions in cardioplegic solutions on intracellular calcium ion handling and cardioprotection during hypoxia and reoxygenation which simulated ischemia and reperfusion or during the arrest of contraction and recontraction under aerobic condition were investigated in cultured neonatal rat myocardial cells.

  • We tested whether inhibition of mitochondrial permeability transition pore opening with cyclosporine A preserved mitochondrial structure and function after cardioplegic arrest and whether this preservation is associated with improved myocardial performance. (biomedsearch.com)
  • OBJECTIVES: We investigated whether the degree of nonischemic myocardial acidosis during a period of cardioplegic arrest differentially affects the recovery of microvascular/left ventricular function, the profile of Bcl2-family protein expression, and the occurrence of apoptosis.
