Table 5 Relaxation of long saphenous vein rings in response to calcium ionophore, sodium nitroprusside and apocynin.

From: Decreased morbidity following long saphenous vein harvesting using a minimally invasive technique: a randomised controlled trial comparing two techniques for long saphenous vein harvest

Agonist Group A Group B  
Apocynin (mean ± 1 sem) 22.3 (8.7) 20.6 (8.6) p = 0.7
Calcium Ionophore (mean ± 1 sem) 18.4 (7.0) 17.6 (7.5) p = 0.4
Sodium Nitroprusside (mean ± 1 sem) 37.6 (12.1) 40.1 (13.1) p = 0.6
