Table 3 Myocardial high energy phophates

From: Custodiol-N, the novel cardioplegic solution reduces ischemia/reperfusion injury after cardiopulmonary bypass

  Custodiol Custodiol-N
ATP (μmol/g dry weight) 9.5 ± 1.5 12.8 ± 1.0*
ADP (μmol/g dry weight) 5.6 ± 1.0 5.6 ± 0.5
AMP (μmol/g dry weight) 1.5 ± 0.3 1.7 ± 0.3
  1. Myocardial levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and adenosine monophosphate (AMP) are shown after cardiopulmonary bypass in both groups. *: p < 0.05 vs. Custodiol.
