Abstract: In 53 patients with mitral- or aortic-mitral valve disease, the content of ATP and lactate of the papillary muscles resected at the time of valve replacement was investigated at the beginning of ischemic arrest and at the time of reperfusion. Profound body hypothermia (25 degrees C) and injection cardioplegia using magnesium-aspartate-procaine were applied for myocardial protection. In hypertrophic papillary muscles the myocardial ATP content decreased at a slower rate (ATP decay 12% of the initial value after… Show more
