Figure 4: Hemodynamic parameters after aortocaval shunt.Hemodynamic parameters of sham-rats and ACS operated rats receiving either vehicle, FG 0041 or FG 2216 are shown. Sham (n = 14), control (n = 15), FG 2216 (n = 10), and FG 0041 (n = 10). SBP = systolic blood pressure; CVP = central venous pressure; LVEDP = left ventricular end-diastolic pressure, dP/dt max = peak positive value of rate of change in left ventricular pressure. *p<0.05 vs. sham. Data are expressed as the mean value ± SEM. |
