Left ventricular end-systolic pressure-volume relationships as a measure of ventricular performance

Abstract

The extent to which conclusions about myocardial performance may be drawn from end-systolic pressure-volume relations was investigated. Left ventricular isovolumetric and end-systolic pressure-volume relationships were measured in the rat, under acute impairment of contractility (hexobarbital), at chronic pressure overload (spontaneously hypertensive rats… (More)
