BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE PDE3 and/or PDE4 control ventricular effects of catecholamines in several species but their relative effects in failing human ventricle are unknown. We investigated whether the PDE3-selective inhibitor cilostamide (0.3-1 μM) or PDE4 inhibitor rolipram (1-10 μM) modified the positive inotropic and lusitropic effects of catecholamines in human failing myocardium. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH Right and left ventricular trabeculae from freshly explanted hearts of 5 non-β-blocker… CONTINUE READING
