Following coronary ligation Porter noted that the procedure frequently resulted in fibrillary contrations of the heart and sudden death. However, death did not always occur and this led him to conclide that Cohnheims (1881) consistently fatal results were due to operative trauma and that the coronary arteries were not end arteries (Willius and Dry).
