Effects of cardiac sympathetic nerve stimulation on the left ventricular end-systolic pressure-volume relationship and plasma norepinephrine dynamics in dogs.

Abstract

The effects of cardiac sympathetic nerve (CSN) stimulation on the left ventricular end-systolic pressure-volume relationship (ESPVR) and plasma norepinephrine (NE) concentration in arterial blood were studied in dogs. In 12 anesthetized and open-chest dogs, left ventricular pressure and volume were measured simultaneously with a microtip catheter and a… (More)
