The contractile dysfunction of the hibernating myocardium in situ results from local environmental factors, but also from intrinsic cellular remodelling that may determine reversibility. Previous studies have suggested defects in myofilament Ca2+ responsiveness. We prepared single myocytes from control (CTRL, n(pigs)=7) and from hibernating myocardium (HIB, n(pigs)=8), removed the membranes and measured isometric force development during direct activation of the myofilaments. One- and 2… CONTINUE READING
