The right internal jugular vein was cannulated with a triple lumen central venous catheter CVC and advanced to vena cava superior for pressure registration and for heroin administration and blood sampling.
One weakness of this model is the lack of formation of M6G, which is also used in the interpretation of postmortem cases.
Each pig was finally euthanized by an i. In light of our findings, this could be explained by the considerably longer detection times for 6-MAM in VH as compared to those in blood. This conclusion was strengthened by the experimental data in the present study Fig.
The differences in penetration into VH observed between drugs have been attributed also to protein-binding of the drugs studied [ 36 ].
