Estrogen has cardioprotective effects. In addition to beneficial effects on lipid metabolism, estrogen affects the vascular tone and may reduce endothelial dysfunction. In the present study, we examined acute gender-specific hemodynamic and inotropic effects of 17beta-estradiol (17beta-E) versus the control situation in open-chest rats. In addition to measurements in the intact circulation, myocardial function was examined on the basis of isovolumic registration independent of peripheral… CONTINUE READING
