ABSTRACT
The clearance of radiorubidium (Rb86) and Lissamine green by the heart has been utilized to measure the influence of epinephrine on the collateral blood flow following coronary artery occlusion. A continuous intravenous infusion of epinephrine following ligation of a coronary artery resulted in an increase in the mean arterial blood pressure, cardiac output, heart tissue perfusion and coronary collateral blood flow. The augmentation of collateral blood flow limited the size of the myocardium, which was ischemic.

    BACKGROUND The most important biomechanical source of activation of the coronary collateral circulation (CCC) is increased tangential fluid shear stress at the arterial endothelial surface. The coronary circulation is unique in that most coronary blood flow occurs in diastole. Consequently, the...
