Effects of ischemia and nitroglycerin on systolic time intervals in the segmental myocardial length were studied in anesthetized open-chest dogs. Two strain-gauges were sutured on the surface of the left ventricular wall; one was in the central area perfused by the left circumflex coronary artery (LCX) and the other was in the area perfused by the left anterior descending coronary artery. LCX was partially occluded with a screw type constrictor to the degree at which reactive hyperemia after the transient total coronary occlusion almost disappeared. After the hemodynamics stabilized nitroglycerin (20 microgram/kg) was injected into the femoral vein. In the ischemic area, contraction time was shortened and precontraction time was prolonged in association with an elongation of end-systolic and early systolic segment-length, respectively. The systolic time intervals in the ischemic segment were improved as a result of the recovery in the segment-length toward the control. The results suggest the usefulness of analyzing the segmental myocardial systolic time intervals for verifying the asynchronous contraction of the ventricle and the favourable effects of nitroglycerin on segmental myocardial function in the ischemic area.
