Effects of duration and severity of arterial hypertension and cardiac hypertrophy on coronary vasodilator reserve.

Cardiac hypertrophy is associated with a decrease in coronary reserve. However, factors which may modulate the interaction between myocardial growth and vascular proliferation, such as duration and severity of hypertrophy, have not been evaluated. We measured myocardial perfusion with microspheres in conscious, chronically instrumented. Wistar-Kyoto (WKY… CONTINUE READING
