Three patients with acute infarction of the anterior wall of the heart underwent catheterisation of the coronary sinus. Samples were taken for estimation of activity of cardiac enzymes. A small gradient was demonstrated between the sinus and the venous blood, suggesting that the coronary sinus is the conduit by which these enzymes are liberated into the systemic circulation.
