A new method of inducing a chronic myocardial infarct is described. A T-shaped plastic tube is inserted into the thoracic cavity and a ligature introduced under the left coronary artery; it is brought to the outside, and then, at some long time after the operation it is tightened, and produces myocardial infarction at the moment when the animal's state of health has practically recovered to the preoperative condition.
