OBJECTIVE Epidemiological studies suggest that consumption of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 PUFA) decreases the risk of heart failure. We assessed the effects of dietary supplementation with omega-3 PUFA from fish oil on the response of the left ventricle (LV) to arterial pressure overload. METHODS Male Wistar rats were fed a standard chow or a omega-3 PUFA-supplemented diet. After 1 week rats underwent abdominal aortic banding or sham surgery (n=9-12/group). LV function was… CONTINUE READING
