AIM Murine myocardial infarction (MI) models are increasingly used in heart failure studies. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and pressure-volume loops by conductance catheter (CC) enable physiological phenotyping. We performed a comparative analysis of MRI vs. CC to assess left ventricular (LV) function in the failing mouse heart. METHODS MI was created by LAD ligation. MRI (day 14) and CC (day 15) were used to determine LV end-diastolic volume (EDV), end-systolic volume (ESV) and ejection… CONTINUE READING
