Altered left ventricular remodeling with beta-adrenergic blockade and exercise after coronary reperfusion in rats.


BACKGROUND beta-Adrenergic blockade is known to improve the survival of patients after acute myocardial infarction and to reduce myocardial infarct size in experimental coronary occlusion. However, the effects of beta-blockade on global and regional left ventricular (LV) remodeling have not been characterized after coronary occlusion with reperfusion. In… (More)
