Female Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were used to explore the structural changes of cardiac dimensions in connection with a sustained hyperkinetic circulation, as induced by pregnancy or thyroxine administration. Cardiac design was assessed by recordings of the diastolic left ventricular pressure-volume relationships in… CONTINUE READING
