We hypothesized that exercise training preserves endothelium-dependent relaxation, lessens receptor-mediated constriction of coronary resistance arteries, and reduces myocardial contractile dysfunction in response to ischemia. After 10 wk of treadmill running or cage confinement, regional and global indexes of left ventricular contractile function were not different between trained and sedentary animals in response to three 15-min periods of ischemia (long-term; n = 17), one 5-min bout of… CONTINUE READING
