Abstract

In mitral insufficiency induced by chordotomy in dogs beside the common diagnostic data the values for tissue perfusion indicative of myocardial microcirculation have been studied. Unexpectedly, a decrease of subendocardial circulation was found; this reduced circulation manifested itself with alterations such as changes in mitochondrial structure, increased quantity of subsarcolemmic sarcoplasma, and degenerative symptoms.
