Side-to-side slippage of myocytes participates in ventricular wall remodeling acutely after myocardial infarction in rats.


To determine whether acute left ventricular failure associated with myocardial infarction leads to architectural changes in the spared nonischemic portion of the ventricular wall, large infarcts were produced in rats, and the animals were killed 2 days after surgery. Left ventricular end-diastolic pressure was increased, whereas left ventricular dP/dt and… (More)
