In the in vivo immature heart, conflicting results are reported for postischemic functional recovery. This study determines whether interpretations of functional recovery are influenced by the contractile performance index (systolic pressure, developed pressure, and maximum rate of systolic pressure increase per unit time) reported or the assessment technique (isovolumetric and variable-volume) utilized. In neonatal pigs (n = 6) on cardiopulmonary bypass, each performance index was examined… CONTINUE READING
