Myocardial contractile dysfunction contributes to the development of heart failure in rats with aortic stenosis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To analyze the potential contribution of contractility state and ventricular geometry to the development of heart failure in rats with aortic stenosis. METHODS Rats were divided into three groups: compensated aortic stenosis (AS, n=11), heart failure AS (n=12) and control rats (C, n=13). RESULTS After 21 weeks, failing AS rats presented… (More)
