Abstract

The first three papers concerned the comparison of intravenous and intracoronary administration of nitroglycerin or nitrates. Obviously, the intracoronary injection of nitroglycerin avoids action of the drug on the peripheral venous and arterial system; on the other hand, the relatively large dose of 0.1—0.2 mg nitroglycerin intracoronary, used by most of the investigators, leads to considerable dilatation of the coronary arteriolar system, the large extramural coronary arteries and perhaps also of the coronary venous bed.
