Effect of regression of cardiac hypertrophy on ischemic myocardial damage in spontaneously hypertensive rats.


Effects of reduction of blood pressure and regression of left ventricular hypertrophy following hydralazine and captopril therapy on ischemic cardiac function and myocardial metabolism were studied in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Hydralazine (1.5 or 3 mg/kg/day) and captopril (50 or 100 mg/kg/day) were administered to SHR from 19 to 26 weeks of… (More)
