The main findings of our research could be summarized that STZ-induced diabetes caused the decrease in LVSP, [+ or -]dp/dtmax, and the increase in LVEDP.
i] intracellular calcium concentration; LVSP, left ventricular systolic pressure; LVEDP, left ventricular end-diastolic pressure: +dp/dtmax, maximum rate of left ventricular pressure rise; -dp/dtmax, maximum rate of left ventricular pressure fall; MET.
LVEDP is often used to assess the degree of cardiac dysfunction in rats (Grossman 1990; Pfeffer et al.
Myotility and haemodynamics can be evaluated through many kinds of indexes, and the changes in LVEDP can be used to measure ventricular metergasis.
Compared with vehicle-control group, ISO-control rats showed left ventricular dysfunction as indicated by a significant rise in LVEDP and fall in values of [+ or -]LVdp/[dt.
