Effect of regional ischemia on the left ventricular end-systolic pressure-volume relation in chronically instrumented dogs.

Abstract

The slope of the left ventricular end-systolic pressure-volume relation has been proposed as a sensitive index of left ventricular function since it increases in response to positive inotropic agents and decreases with global depression of contractility. The effect of a segmental depression of left ventricular contractile function produced by circumflex… (More)
