BACKGROUND There have been few trials in which dogs with mitral regurgitation (MR) have been treated with various cardioactive drugs to determine effects on left ventricular (LV) function. HYPOTHESIS Four classes of cardiovascular drugs may improve LV function in dogs with MR without increasing MR. ANIMALS Nine mature dogs were included in the study. METHODS MR was produced in 9 dogs. Five months later under butorphanol narcosis, parameters of LV function and left atrial dimension (LAD… CONTINUE READING
