60 elective patients for CABG will be included to receive either standard hyperkalemic cardioplegia (St.Thomas Hospital Solution No I) or cardioplegia where supranormal potassium is replaced with 1.2 mM adenosine. Hypothesis as follows: 1. Adenosine instead of supranormal potassium in the cardioplegic solution give satisfactory cardiac arrest. 2. Adenosine instead of supranormal potassium in the cardioplegic solution gives equal cardioprotection. The patients will be followed with PiCCO-catheter to monitor cardiac function and repetitive blood samples to measure release of cardiac enzymes.

ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
