The effects of the addition of a nitric oxide (NO) donor to the cardioplegic solution on reperfusion injury and lipid peroxidation (LPO) in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are not known. Therefore. this work was conducted to determine the possible effects of nitroglycerin on LPO and reperfusion injury as a result of CABG.
