The Role of Nitric Oxide in Myocardial Ischemia / Reperfusion

(Click above to view source article) ABSTRACT = Objective: The role of nitric oxide (NO) in myocardial ischemia/reperfusion is controversial. While some studies have shown cardioprotective effects of NO, others suggested that increased myocardial NO release secondary to ischemia may contribute to reperfusion injury. However, the impact of cardioplegia-induced myocardial ischemia/reperfusion on the activity of […]
