Pulmonary responses to 5-hydroxytryptamine and endothelin-1 in a rabbit model of left ventricular dysfunction.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine whether pulmonary hypertension developed in a coronary artery-ligated rabbit model of left ventricular dysfunction (LVD) and to examine the effects of i.v. 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) on pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP). METHODS Eight weeks after experimental coronary artery ligation or sham operation… (More)
