Briefly, the Langendorff preparation involves the use of a freshly excised heart from an anesthetized mouse. Once removed from the animal, the heart is immediately placed in a container of warm, heparinized, oxygenated Krebs-Henseleit perfusate solution and any remaining tissue surrounding the heart and aorta is removed. The heart is then carefully mounted on the aorta cannula to a level just above the aortic valve and coronary artery ostia. A pressure transducer is connected to a side port of the cannula to measure mean aortic pressure.
