These measures were as follows: (a) selecting animals showing ST segment elevation; (b) inducing an extensive area of myocardium by proximally occluding the left anterior descending coronary artery, which perfuses 25-40% [1] of the ventricular myocardium; (c) restoring coronary flow for more rapid and complete washout of CK; (d) sampling blood frequently for CK analysis; (e) using sensitive assays to detect mitochondrial and cytosolic CK; (fl assaying for mitochondrial CK independent of enzyme activity; (g) keeping the animal alive for 48 h after occlusion to optimize detection of manifestations of irreversible injury by light and electron microscopic analysis.
