Dynamic cardiomyoplasty, a method to support ventricular function by the chronically stimulated latissimus dorsi muscle wrapped around the heart is accompanied by a loss of mass and force of the transplanted muscle. These effects and the fast-to-slow transformation of the muscle could be possibly influenced by the additional administration of anabolic steroids. In this study, the left latissimus dorsi muscles of 12 sheep were electrically conditioned (group A). In 12 other animals (group B… CONTINUE READING
