Ventricular diastolic pressure-volume shifts during acute ischemic left ventricular failure in dogs

Journal of the American College of Cardiology

Ischemic left ventricular failure was produced in eight acutely instrumented, anesthetized dogs to study the contribution of changing myocardial compliance and pericardial pressure to shifts in right and left ventricular diastolic pressure-volume relations. Right and left ventricular and pericardial volumes were measured by ungated computed tomography. Cardiac volumes were manipulated by infusion of saline solution, hemorrhage, phenylephrine infusion and, during failure only, nitroglycerin administration. During both control and failure periods, these interventions shifted the left and right ventricular pressure-volume relations by changing pericardial pressure only; that is, these interventions caused no change in the ventricular transmural pressure-volume relation. The induction of failure as such increased pericardial pressure only minimally and did not change the left ventricular or right ventricular transmural pressure-volume relations significantly. Volume loading during the control period caused an apparent pericardial creep which attenuated the pericardial effect on ventricular pressure-volume relations. During failure, volume loading caused an increase of right ventricular volume, but tended to decrease left ventricula...Continue Reading

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
