Myocardial stunning, which is closely related to myocardial edema, is a severe complication that may occur following cardiac surgery. In this study, we examined the expression of aquaporin 1 (AQP1) and Connexin 43 (Cx43) following cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) surgery in goats. We assessed myocardial muscle tissue water content according to changes in dry-wet weight. Our results showed that AQP1 expression and myocardial muscle tissue water content increased significantly 6 h after CPB surgery,doi:10.3892/ijmm.2013.1228 pmid:23292298 fatcat:2hy7wyjngfchnfjwpque7kgihu
