Abstract

Purpose The mechanism of the vasorelaxation to levosimendan varies depending on the vascular bed and species studied. Here, we examined the vasorelaxation to levosimendan as well as its modification by various potassium channel antagonists in human internal mammary artery (IMA) obtained from male and female patients.
