Soifer nique also involves the use of a catheter placed in the coronary artery under fluoroscopy. When a bolus of mercury, agar, or glass beads is injected through the catheter into the vasculature there is a diffuse interruption of the blood supply to the affected myocardium. , dog or pig). The disadvantage that remains even with the closed chest operation is the use of anesthesia, which plays an important part in the sequelae following coronary artery occlusion.

Dogs) where increased levels of cAMP were absent. Thus, additional studies are needed to elucidate the role of this metabolite in the development of arrhythmia in different experimental models before its role in man can be determined. More recently, the prostaglandins (PG) have also been shown to be released by the ischemic myocardium following coronary occlusion. In addition, numerous reports have indicated that PG also exerts an influ­ ence on cardiac rhythmicity. Whether these effects are beneficial or detrimental appears to depend upon the specific PG involved, the model in which it is used, and the dose and route of administration.

E. Soifer sion are different. In order to alleviate the high incidence of ventricular fibrillation ( 3 0 - 3 5 % ) that occurs during the first phase following abrupt occlusion, Harris developed a model of two-stage slow coronary occlusion, which we have discussed previously in Section II. This model reduced the first phase (early arrhythmia) with its high mortality and enabled Harris to better characterize the late phase of arrhythmia, which occurred 4 . 5 - 8 h after coronary occlusion and lasted for 2 to 3 days.
