The effect of chronic digitoxin administration on the contractile state of normal and nonfailing hypertrophied myocardium.

Abstract

To determine the effect of prolonged digitoxin administration on contractile function of nonfailing myocardium, right ventricular papillary muscle mechanics were examined after 6 or 24 wk of glycoside administration to control and pulmonary artery banded cats. Resting length-tension relations were not affected by digitoxin; however, isometrically developed… (More)
