We studied the effect of chronic endothelin A receptor blockade by atrasentan on the pulmonary endothelin-1 system and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in piglets with high pulmonary blood flow. Twenty-five 4-week-old piglets with high pulmonary blood flow were randomized to three groups: sham operated (n = 8), placebo (water) (n = 7),(More)
