A new hydrodynamic approach by infusion of drag-reducing polymers to improve left ventricular function in rats with myocardial infarction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown that drag-reducing polymers (DRPs) prolonged survival time in rats with acute myocardial infarction (MI), but their effect on cardiac function post MI remains unknown. This study sought to test the hypothesis that intravenous infusion of DRPs may improve left ventricular (LV) function in rats following surgically induced… (More)
