Abstract

Pathologic studies of myocardium at intervals up to one yr after embolization of the left circumflex coronary artery in dogs showed that the changes are those of a granulomatous myocarditis and arteritis rather than infarction, and suggest that this technique does not provide a suitable model for the study of acute infarction or chronic ischemic heart disease.
