We tested the hypothesis that isoproterenol would increase myocardial work and O2 consumption at reduced efficiency and that both left ventricular hypertrophy and chemical sympathectomy would lead to changes in this myocardial efficiency response. Left ventricular hypertrophy was produced by aortic valve plication in 23 puppies. Six months later,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim was to test the hypothesis that local myocardial work and O2 consumption would respond differentially to milrinone, a selective cyclic AMP-phosphodiesterase inhibitor, in left ventricular hypertrophy due to differences in myocardial cyclic AMP-phosphodiesterase activity. METHODS The effect of milrinone on regional segment work and(More)
In a dog model of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) created by aortic valve plication, we examined the hypothesis that regional myocardial inotropic and metabolic responses to alpha-adrenergic stimulation would be diminished due to decreased alpha-adrenoceptor number. After systemic beta-adrenergic blockade, phenylephrine (PE, 5 micrograms.kg-1.min-1) was(More)
Nitroprusside can produce negative inotropy by activating cGMP. We hypothesized that in left ventricular hypertrophy produced by aortic valve plication (LVH), control of myocardial work and metabolism by cGMP production would be altered in response to nitroprusside. In anesthetized open chest preparations using 9 LVH and 12 control dogs, nitroprusside (4(More)
