Influence of calcium channel blocker treatment on the mechanical properties of diabetic rat myocardium

Abstract

The objective of this investigation was to determine whether calcium channel blocker (CCB) treatment effectively restores normal baseline mechanical function in diabetic myocardium and to evaluate its effect on the interval-strength relationship. Wistar rats were made diabetic with streptozotocin (55 mg/kg, IV). Left-ventricular papillary muscles from… (More)
