  1. Experimental protocol comparing calcium homoeostasis in the control group (non-cardioplegia and reperfusion) versus the cardioplegia and reperfusion group. Time sets were 20/7, 40/13 and 60/20 min. Δ-ratio was calculated as ratiofinal-ratioinitial. Ratio values of n = 5 experiments are noted as mean ± SEM. Significant (p < 0.05) calcium homoeostasis disarrangements were detected in the control group (marked with stars).
