OBJECTIVE To study the sequential shortening of Torrent-Guasp's 'rope-heart model' of the muscular band, and analyze the structure-function relationship of basal loop wrapping the outer right and left ventricles, around the inner helical apical loop containing reciprocal descending and ascending spiral segments. METHODS In 24 pigs (27-82 kg), temporal shortening by sonomicrometer crystals was recorded. The ECG evaluated rhythm, and Millar pressure transducers measured intraventricular… CONTINUE READING
