We developed a minimally invasive method for producing left ventricular (LV) pressure overload in mice. With the use of this technique, we quickly and reproducibly banded the transverse aorta with low surgical morbidity and mortality. Minimally invasive transverse aortic banding (MTAB) acutely and chronically increased LV systolic pressure, increased heart(More)
