Sepsis-induced depressed contractile function of isolated ventricular myocytes is due to altered calcium transient properties.

Abstract

Chronic peritoneal sepsis in a rodent model produces myocardial dysfunction characterized by decreased rates of ventricular contraction and relaxation in the isolated heart preparation. However, it remains controversial whether the ventricular contractility is altered during sepsis. In the present study, we determined the effect of chronic peritoneal sepsis… (More)
