An extensive literature exists describing the acute changes in hemodynamics and left ventricular function following coronary occlusion in animals [1– 4]. Much less, however, is known in man. Extrapolating results from animals to man is potentially difficult, since, in man preexisting atherosclerotic coronary disease and a unique distribution of collateral circulation [5–7] may influence findings.
