The effect of chronic consumption of ethanol upon myocardial function has been in dispute. The mechanical performance of isolated left ventricular papillary muscles was studied in a group of eight male rats which had been on a diet in which ethanol provided 36% of total calories for 5 weeks. This group was compared to a pairfed control group of eight rats. Muscles were studied in oxygenated Krebs-Henseleit solution at 28°C, while stretched to Lmax and stimulated at 12/min to contract… CONTINUE READING
