Native f3-Adrenergic Support for Left Ventricular Dysfunction in Experimental Mitral Regurgitation Normalizes Indexes of Pump and Contractile Function


Background It is generally accepted that the adrenergic nervous system provides inotropic support for the failing heart. However, the magnitude of this support has never been studied extensively. The present study was performed to test the hypothesis that the adrenergic nervous system is capable of maintaining indexes of pump and contractile function in the… (More)
