OBJECTIVE: Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is a leading cause of mortality with insufficient results of current therapies, most probably due to maintained endothelial dysfunction conditions. Alternatively, we propose a new treatment that promotes endothelial shear stress (ESS) enhancement using an intrapulmonary pulsatile catheter.
METHODS: Twelve piglets, divided in equal groups of 6: pulsatile (P) and non-pulsatile (NP), underwent permanent left anterior descending coronary artery ligation through sternotomy. After 1h of ischemia and heparin injection (150IU/kg): in P group, a pulsatile catheter was introduced into the pulmonary trunk and pulsated intermittently over 1h, and irrespective of heart rate (110bpm). In NP group, nitrates were given (7±2mg/kg/min) for 1h.
RESULTS: In P group all 6 animals survived ischemia for 120min, but in NP group only 2 animals survived. The 4 animals that died during the experiment in NP group survived for 93±14min. Hemodynamics and cardiac output (CO) were significantly improved in P group compared with NP group: CO was 0.92±0.15 vs. 0.52±0.08 in NP group (L/min; p<0.05), respectively. Vascular resistances ( were significantly (p<0.05) lower in P group versus NP group: pulmonary resistance was 119±13 vs. 400±42 and systemic resistance was 319±43 vs. 1857±326, respectively. Myocardial apoptosis was significantly (p<0.01) lower in P group (0.66±0.07) vs. (4.18±0.27) in NP group. Myocardial endothelial NO synthase mRNA expression was significantly (p<0.01) greater in P group (0.90±0.09) vs. (0.25±0.04) in NP group.
CONCLUSIONS: Intrapulmonary pulsatile catheter could improve hemodynamics and myocardial contractility in acute myocardial ischemia. This represents a cost-effective method, suitable for emergency setting as a first priority, regardless of classical coronary reperfusion.
