Collagen plays a major role in the structural organization of the heart and therefore direct visualization of collagen fibers is a crucial component of cardiac analysis. Although linearly polarized light has proven an effective tool for the examination of myocardial collagen in histologic...
Knowledge of myocardial electrical resistivity is of interest because passive electrical properties govern the electrotonic spread of current through the myocardium and influence the shape and velocity of the excitation wave. In addition, measurements of myocardial resistivity may provide...
Simultaneous in vivo infusions of two different colored 10 μm microsphere suspensions into the left anterior descending (LAD; red spheres) and left circumflex (LCx; blue spheres) coronary arteries of nine anesthetized dogs identified a specific region of canine myocardium perfused by both...
Recent studies have shown that chronic pacing induced tachycardia in large animals such as dogs and pigs causes congestive heart failure accompanied by myocyte contractile abnormalities, neurohormonal activation, alterations in sarcolemmal receptor systems, and changes in myocardial structure....
The purpose of this investigation was to assess the effects of ischemia and reperfusion on the transmural levels of glucose and lactate in the interstitium in 11 open-chest swine. Microdialysis probes were used to estimate changes in interstitial metabolities across the ventricular wall. Probes...
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of bradykinin (BK), substance P (SP) and histamine on plasma exudation in the skin of conscious dogs with and without pacing-induced heart failure. We also determined the role tissue angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) and neutral...
