Isolated cat trabeculae were studied under conditions resembling those present for the muscle fibers in the wall of the left ventricle. To obtain such a situation experimental animals, perfusion fluid, temperature, stimulation frequency, peak stress values, contraction sequence, length, and force control were chosen with respect to that criterion. Results were compared with those described for the intact feline heart in previous studies. Special emphasis was placed on determinants of the pump… CONTINUE READING
