PMID:  925909     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Myocardial infarctions were produced in rats by electro-cauterization of the left anterior descending artery, and the extent of myocardial damage was measured by serial serum levels of creatine phosphokinase activity utilizing spectrophotometric analysis. All animals were also evaluated for myocardial damage by electrocardiographic wave alterations. A correlation between myocardial infarct size and serum creatine phosphokinase was demonstrated. Significant arrhythmias and death occurred only in experimental groups where myocardial infarction had been produced. This small animal model offers a quick, inexpensive, and simple method for screening therapeutic agents that alter infarct size.
