Effects of dantrolene sodium on progression of left ventricular hypertrophy induced by pressure overload in rats.


We studied the long-term effects of dantrolene sodium (D), a specific sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+-release inhibitor, on the progression of left ventricular pressure-overloaded hypertrophy in rats. We treated abdominal aorta-constricted rats with one of two doses of D for 4 weeks. The extent of hypertrophy was expressed as the ratio of left ventricle to… (More)
