Abnormal coronary perfusion in experimental scorpion envenomation.

PMID:  7725336     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Perfusion defects and left ventricular dilation after experimental scorpion envenomation were evaluated in five dogs. Left Left ventricular dilation was observed in three dogs and right ventricular dilation in one other, in scans immediately after envenomation. Perfusion defects were inferred from scans in four dogs. The data are strongly suggestive of coronary hypoperfusion, and the mechanics of abnormal coronary flow after scorpion envenomation are discussed.
