Increasing coronary perfusion pressure on diastolic and systolic performance is less pronounced in right ventricle than in left ventricle.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Little is known as to whether an increase in coronary perfusion pressure can alter the right ventricular (RV) distensibility and the contractile function as it does in the case of the LV. METHODS In eight isolated isovolumically contracting canine hearts, RV and LV volumes and coronary perfusion were independently controlled. Effects of an… (More)
