- Brief summaryIn animal models of myocardial infarction, helium pre- and postconditioning has shown promising results in the reduction of infarct size. Since helium , which is a registered medical gas, has no cardiovascular side-effects known until now, it could provide an attractive therapeutic agent to reduce ischemia reperfusion injury in clinical settings of ischemia-reperfusion, e.g. acute myocardial infarction. It appears that helium has no effects on hemodynamics. However, whether helium has any effect on the coronary circulation is not known. This study investigates whether helium influences coronary flow, coronary pressure, microvascular resistance and vessel diameter of coronary arteries in humans. The study is an open-label single center study with a cross-over design, in which 20 patients scheduled for elective PCI of the LAD will be included. In all the participants measurements will be done before and after helium inhalation (79% helium with 21% oxygen).
