Differential effects of arginine vasopressin on isolated guinea pig heart function during perfusion at constant flow and constant pressure.

Abstract

8-Arginine vasopressin (AVP) is a powerful coronary vasoconstrictor as well as peripheral vasoconstrictor, but AVP also is reported to have negative cardiac inotropic and chronotropic effects in vitro and in vivo. Our aim was to examine the direct effects of coronary vasoconstriction by AVP on cardiac function and metabolism in isolated guinea pig hearts… (More)
