OBJECTIVE The effects of a brief period of anoxia upon myocardial distensibility and coronary vascular resistance (CVR) were evaluated in two models of pressure overload in the rat. METHODS A similar degree of left ventricular hypertrophy was obtained by using deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt treatment and abdominal aortic stenosis (AS). The study was performed using an isolated, isovolumic cardiac preparation perfused at a constant coronary flow of approximately 20 ml/min per g left… CONTINUE READING
