Coronary flow rates were similar in intact and GDX hearts in reperfusion, although GDX reduced the magnitude of contractures seen in reperfusion. a Coronary flow data were analyzed with a Mann-Whitney U test. Results showed that there was no difference in coronary flow rates in reperfusion between intact and GDX groups (U = 7.0, p = 0.556). b Cardiac contracture levels were evaluated with a t test. Results showed that contractures in reperfusion were smaller in the GDX hearts (t = 3.686, p = 0.008). Values are expressed as the mean ± SEM. Intact male, n = 5; GDX male, n = 4
